Hibiscus syriacus 'Notwoodthree' USPP 20,574; CBR 3583

 

This heavy blooming variety of Rose of Sharon produces semi-double blue flowers from late spring to frost. The Blue Chiffon® grows to a height of 8 to 12 feet, but can be pruned back mildly to increase blooms. A hardy plant, tolerating heat and humidity, also adds interest by attracting hummingbirds and butterflies while deterring deer. This shrub is sold in a 3 gallon trade container.

Joseph's Take

Growing up my grandmother has lots of Rose of Sharon as these were called back then. They were heavy in the seed category therefore spreading all over the yard. These new refined Rose of Sharon do not spread in the invasive way that old varieties did. Plus, the flowers are much prettier, longer lasting, and are re-blooming. I'm now using these plants in some of my landscapes for their summer blooms. Very nice!
