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 and have more interest. Very nice!
As I writing these descriptions, Im wondering how it would be to mix all three Lil' Kim® as a short hedge along a fence. I've got the perfect spot!
