You're in for a real treat with this lovely Hibiscus variety. It produces an abundance of lilac-pink double blooms that provide soft color all the way through summer and into fall. Trained as a standard, its spherical form reaches a petite 4' tall, making it the perfect choice for sunny corners. Maintains shape with minimal pruning. Zones 5-8. Ships as 3' Bareroot. Hibiscus syriacus 'Ardens'. Full Sun to Partial Shade. Deer tend to avoid.

Hibiscus syriacus, also known as Rose of Sharon, is handy if you love the look of tropical flowers, but need something more reliable in a cold climate. Rose of Sharon is woody, and these hard stems won't die back in the winter, standing up to cold weather better. It's gorgeous architectural interest for a more formal landscape.
