    Product Description

    Looking for a new shrub idea for a focal point or hedge? Check. One that flowers midsummer to fall when the rest of the garden is fading? Check. How about a flowering shrub that produces large, fully double, sterile flowers that don't produce invasive seed pods? You've found it—Strawberry Smoothie Hibiscus is for you. Hibiscus syriacus, also known as Rose of Sharon, is handy if you love the look of tropical flowers, but need something more reliable in a cold climate. Rose of Sharon is woody, and these hard stems won't die back in the winter, standing up to cold weather better. The other big reason gardeners love syriacus is when they want a hibiscus tree. It naturally grows into a vase shape, but the woody stems can be manipulated into a nice tree shape. It's gorgeous architectural interest for a more formal landscape. This variety of the hardy hibiscus bears luscious red buds that open to creamy pink, tissue-like flowers in the heat of the summer when little else is blooming. The contrast of its pastel flowers against vibrant green foliage is sure to brighten any sunny area of the landscape. Add to the remarkable flowers the fact that this hibiscus is sterile, eliminating the messy seed pods that invade your borders, and you have a summer-flowering shrub with enormous appeal. Planting in groups of three or more or in line as a privacy hedge heightens its impact. A butterfly and hummingbird magnet, this tough and hardy shrub is the ideal low-maintenance ornamental.
