The color transformation from bud to bloom is fascinating.
This hardy hibiscus is an easy-to-grow shrub. It is valued for its tight, upright form and large summer blossoms, adding color to the landscape when few other plants are in bloom. Flowers are trumpet-shaped and come in a variety of colors including white, pink, red, purple and violet.
The rose-of-sharon is suited to formal or informal plantings, groupings, shrub borders, hedges and screens and grows to a height of 8–12' and a spread of 6–10' at maturity.
