Smoothie Fusion™ Hibiscus 'Rose of Sharon'
Hibiscus syriacus 'DS01BS/DS04PS/DS03RS' PP26662
Looking for something vibrant with plenty of color and blooms, but can’t decide on just one plant? Look no further! You get three times the surprise of double blooms in this triple-fusion delight. With its fast growing upright habit, the Smoothie Fusion Hibiscus loves sun and will capture your attention from Summer to Fall. Maturing upwards of 8 feet tall and 4 feet wide, you can definitely use it in a number of gardening applications as a hedge, screening, or mass planting. Being deciduous, they spring back to life each year making their comeback even more enjoyable than the last. Color palettes can range between several options, but rarely bloom with one color. Here you can see a couple unique variants blooming beautifully. Another thing to note is its incredible hardiness levels to temperatures and also to soils capable of growing from zones 5-10 with little care and maintenance required after establishing.
