Blue Chiffon™ Rose of Sharon
Big Double Blooms over 2 Seasons!
Large, double blooms of light blue with a lacy center dot this charming shrub from June through October! One of the longest-blooming as well as most prolific Hibiscus, Blue Chiffon™ is a carefree joy you'll want for the hot, sunny summer garden.
From June through October, this rugged shrub is simply a blizzard of fully double 3- to 4-inch blooms, each with a frilly center that adds texture and impact to the flower. They arise on handsome shrubs 8 to 12 feet tall and 4 to 6 feet wide.
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 -- deer-resistant and very attractive to butterflies! -- 5 months out of every year!
Blue Chiffon™ is a nice choice for a foundation planting, accent in the patio or other garden nook, or hedge. It makes a fine 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.
Space these shrubs about 4 to 5 feet apart for a dense "wall" of showy color. Zones 5-8. Cannot ship to AZ.
