    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.

      Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
    • Every year I plant Rockapulco in the shade and every year a different neighbor will ask me about my mini rose bushes.  The flowers resemble roses and the plant has tons of blooms on it all season long. Definitely an impressive plant to enjoy every year.
