Hibiscus syriacus 'DS02SS'

 

This heavy blooming variety of Rose of Sharon produces semi-double blue flowers from late spring to frost. Strawberry Smoothie™ grows to a height of 8 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 container.

 

Hibiscus syriacus makes for good tea and food, among other usages such as cordage or medicine. There is information readily available for this species, as well as recipes. Please do your own research, and consume or use at your own risk. Expect mucilage from this okra relative.

Joseph's Take

Strawberry Smoothie Hibiscus is new to me, I love the back of the flowers as they are pink and a creamy white. I am looking forward to the summer season when we will really have a chance to see these grow to maturity and view their Peony like flowers.
