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
When you plant pollinators they will come. When you understand what sustains backyard wildlife, you can work to provide shelter, food and water. The plants in this collection are wildlife magnets. Pollinators are a vital part of life on earth as they pollinate most flowering plants. They do this by transferring pollen from bloom to bloom. Pollinators have been in decline due to habitat loss and disease. It is surprisingly easy and lots of fun to attract pollinators to your garden for some spectacular entertainment. This collection consists of: 1 each of Wisteria Blue Moon, Viburnum Sterile and Forsythia Magical Gold.
- Beneficial to pollinators; attracts bees, butterflies & hummingbirds
