Hibiscus Lavender Chiffon® Description
Between its spectacular purple powderpuff flowers and its elegant, rounded habit, we think Lavender Chiffon® rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus) is one of the best on the market. All summer long, it produces hundreds of fully double purple blooms and requires no special care – just plant it in a sunny spot where it has the room to reach its full size and enjoy the show!
This exceptional Proven Winners ColorChoice flowering shrub is perfect for a stunning specimen or flowering hedge. We love rose of Sharon incorporated into perennial and flower gardens, as well as pollinator gardens. You simply can’t go wrong when you plant this super floriferous, super easy-care plant.
