Rose of Sharon 'Blue Chiffon'
Latin Name: Hibiscus syriacus 'Blue Chiffon'
Amazing large semi-double blooms are light blue with soft violet lacy centers; a tall, stiffly upright shrub with vase shape habit; extremely showy flowers in late summer; very adaptable plant, but prefers full sun; can be trained into a small tree.
Blue Chiffon Rose of Sharon is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.
This is a high maintenance shrub that will require regular care and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds to your yard.
