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.
