These large flowers are four inches in diameter and start blooming in spring and continue until fall!

Rose of Sharon prefers full sun and well-drained soil and is very tolerant of heat and drought. Keep it well watered during growth.
Blushing Bride does best in full sun, but light shade is acceptable, especially in far southern or southwestern climates.
