Hibiscus syriacus "white leaves and pink-purple flowers"

Rose of Sharon

Plant Type:

DECIDUOUS SHRUBS


Hibiscus syriacus "white leaves and pink-purple flowers" (ex: Jonathan Lehrer) - ​8 available. A neat selection of Rose of Sharon with leaves that emerge creamy white and become eventually infused with increasing green, finally darkening to solid green. The lovely shrub is studded with pink-purple hibiscus flowers with a deep red-purple eye zone for a long period beginning in mid summer and lasting until fall. Site in full sun planted in fertile moisture retaining soil for best performance. If you have the room consider pairing Buddleia davidii 'White Profusion' with Hibiscus syriacus "white leaves and pink-purple flowers" for an eye-popping, long blooming late season display. The vibrant pink-purple hibiscus circles contrasted with the large white cones of the buddleia... well, the combo is truly dazzling. It may be wise policy to protect your hibiscus for the first 2 or even 3 years in the northern part of its range. Established pot grown shrub from cutting.
