Rose of Sharon is an upright, vigorous, multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub that typically gets 8-12ft tall growing in a vase shape. It can be shaped into an open hedge or trained as a small tree or espalier. Showy, hibiscus flowers have 5 petals (3” diameter) and has a prominent staminal column. Flower colors are red, pink, cream, white, purple and blue violet. Blooming over a long period, usually from early to mid-summer through early fall. The three lobed green (4” long) leaves are palmately-veined and coarsely-toothed; they’re attractive during the growing season but produce no fall color.
