Rose of Sharon ‘Blue Chiffon’
Hibiscus syriacus ‘Blue Chiffon’
Rose of Sharon is a classic, old-fashioned landscape plant. Single, blue-violet flowers with a lacy center cover this midsummer bloomer from July through August, a time of year when few shrubs bloom. An excellent choice for screening and privacy. Best if grown in full sun, Rose of Sharon is very drought tolerant once established.
Hibiscus syriacus 'Notwoodthree'
Grows in any soil unless it is either really wet or dry. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Prune in late fall or early spring. Can be heavily pruned, but this is not usually necessary.
Green leaves turn yellow in fall.
