Key facts about Rockapulco Coral Reef impatiens
- 13 in (33 cm) tall, 18 in (45 cm) wide
- Part shade to part sun
Double impatiens blooms remind me of mini roses. This new introduction has an exceptionally vibrant colour, and the plants stand up to heat and humidity. —Beckie Fox, Garden Making
The Rockapulco Series is from Proven Winners; other colours in the series are apple blossom (pale pink), dark orange, orchid, pink, purple, red, rose and white. The Coral Reef shade has a slight iridescence. They do prefer shade, but will perform well in part sun as long as the soil is kept consistently moist (but not soggy). No deadheading is necessary.
