Rocketliners® are sized, shaped and rooted throughout the pot with strong and responsive roots. Gardeners can expect a finished healthy plant within a single growing season. They have greater fresh root mass and vertical root training which promotes faster finishing times. While it can often take up to 3 years for a shrub or vine to get fully established growing from bareroot, Rocketliners® may only take 12 months, saving you up to 2 seasons of waiting time. Rocketliners® are for gardeners that have busy lives, little time to waste and want to start out with the best planting stock.
About this Variety
Poprocks™ Petite (Spiraea japonica 'Odessa' USPPAF) from Bloomin' Easy® is an improved deciduous shrub, noted for its tidy compact form. Poprocks™ Petite only reaches 30 inches tall after four years of maturity so you don't need to worry about it wildly overgrowing your space like older varieties. This new variety will satisfy your sugar cravings as its the sweetest Spirea of all, featuring eye-catching candy-pink button flowers that pop against rich green foliage from late spring to fall. Place your new friends along a walkway, grouped in mixed beds or as the star of a decorative container.
