Azurri Satin® Rose of Sharon
Deep Blue Blooms Turn Purple In the Center
This seedless Rose of Sharon grows an even larger body with even bigger flowers. The rich blue single flowers are as big as dinner plates, and they arise on lush plants 6 feet wide and 8 to 12 feet tall! This thriller is sure to become the focal point of you whole garden. And because this cultivar is sterile, it will not take over your yard (and beyond) like other Hibiscus can.
Azurri Satin® is a carefree joy you'll want for the hot, sunny summer garden. Few shrubs are more heat- and humidity-tolerant than Hibiscus, which basks in temperatures that make others wilt and brown out! Give this shrub plenty of water and nonstop sunlight and you've got a bloom machine 5 months out of every year!
The showy, tropical blooms are a powder blue with a crimson eye that bleeds outward. The stunning, gigantic blooms open from late summer until late fall, attracting attention for months. Even though this variety is seedless, it still produces enough nectar to attract plenty of butterflies! The alluring blooms are all the more impressive because they are borne high in the air on plants with a graceful, narrow habit.
Azurri Satin ® is a great choice for a foundation planting, accent in the patio or other garden nook, or hedge. It makes a fine companion to Plum Fantasy, and a nice background planting to Dwarf Russian Sage and other low-growing shrubs, as well as colorful annuals and perennials of all description. No shrub is easier--this is one tough plant, untroubled by pests and disease and able to maintain itself through good weather and poor alike.
And because Azurri Satin ® is a Proven Winner® Colorchoice® Shrub, you can be sure it will thrive in your garden. To make the cut, these plants must be tested in several trial gardens all around the world and found to have excellent performance and groundbreaking beauty! Space these beautiful shrubs about 4 to 5 feet apart for a dense "wall" of showy color. Zones 5-9.
