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

Stunner™ (Weigela x 'Spring 2' USPPAF) from Bloomin' Easy® is loaded with vibrant pink flowers against sleek, near- black foliage in sunny locations. This improved new variety is compact and easy to grow so you can spend your time relaxing and enjoying the view. Blooms heavily in spring and may rebloom 1-2 times throughout the season. A light trim will promote and enhance reblooming qualities. Dark foliage contrasts bright colors so make it the star of a decorative patio container or grouped in mixed beds in front of bright blooming medium sized varieties.
