Deadheading isn't necessary but removing spent blooms isn't harmful if you want to clean the plants.

Rockapulco impatiens are very easy to care for, provide them with a shady location, give them a bit of fertilizer and don't let them dry out too much and they will be happy campers. The shouldn't need to be trimmed back, but can be pruned to shape them at any time. If they get too tall, you can cut them back to promote additional branching and a more compact habit.

An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

Is there anyone who hasn't heard of Impatiens? They grow in shade; like warm weather; annual except in zones 10 - 11; have single or double flowers? Rockapulco, however, aren't your shade garden variety Impatiens. We're a new series from one of the world's best plant breeders. Rockapulco thrive in the hottest, most humid deep shade. Like inside a brick-walled courtyard in the Midwest or South.

Each plant forms a symmetrical mound of dark green foliage 10 -20 inches tall. Within a few weeks, an endless profusion of double flowers creates an ever-blooming display of color. Appleblossom, Dark Orange, Orchid, Pink, Purple, Red, Rose, and White. We will Rockapulco your world.

  • This plant shines in shade and part sun. I have it in a pot in full sun from early morning until 3PM, and it looks great. I also put it in a pot in the shade and it brightens the area up beautifully. It is my favorite inpatiens.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • I absolutely love Rockapulco! Appleblossom did well in a shaded bed, mixed with Euphorbia Diamond Frost. No fuss! Bloomed right up until frost. They made a stunning combination planting. I'm going to do it again but in red!

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • This plant, of which I have two, is doing amazingly well in the shade. It self cleans, so no deadheading, and the blossoms are this gorgeous light pink. Its a pretty little plant. I'm hoping it survives the zone 9a winter...

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
