Rockapulco® Impatiens, Double

Rockapulco? impatiens up the color ante in the shade garden with an abundance of multi-petaled, rose-shaped flowers set against dark green foliage. The plant has a mounding form and grows to 10 to 20 inches tall. Available in seven shades Appleblossom, Coral Reef, Dark Orange, Orchid, Purple, Red, Rose, White and Wisteria.

Rockapulco? will thrive in the hottest, most humid deep shade where many plants won’t grow. They’ll also do well in partial shade. Soil composition is important. The plant’s tender, fibrous roots need loose, well-drained soil with lots of organic material worked in.

In small spaces use a single color for a dramatic statement. A drift of Rockapulco? White or Appleblossom will make the area sparkle. Plant large areas with 3 shades of Impatiens from the same color family. For instance, Rockapulco? Appleblossom, Orchid and Rose would be a beautiful color combination.
