Cool Blue Mid-Season Bloomer

Love summer? If you have a pool, or regularly entertain family and friends in your backyard, take a look at this bold, hardy hibiscus. It's a great way to highlight the season of fun, and you won't need to fuss with it.

Need a hedge or screen? Coelestis Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus 'Coelestis') would be wonderful as an informal, super easy care flowering wall for a garden room, or all along your fence line. Because it naturally grows in a graceful, upright way, you will only rarely have to worry about mundane tasks like pruning.

Huge, violet-blue, tropical looking flowers cover this large vase-shaped shrub starting in mid-summer and continuing on through fall. Not many other flowering shrubs bloom during this time, so get ready for compliments.

The flowers themselves are very showy, with deep, heathery blue petals held in an open style. Called "single" blooms, this really means hummingbirds and butterflies will be coming to your house to party. It's a lot easier for them to drink nectar from open flowers. The color turns scarlet at the throat of the bloom.

Pair this fun shrub with Russian Sage to pull in the cool blue. Then, pop-bright Voodoo Sedum along the base as a groundcover. Easy, peasy lemon squeezy style for weeks on end!

Or, use a single shrub as a beautiful specimen plant outside a kitchen window, or in a courtyard. Bring some of the tropics home, order today!

  • Huge Blue Violet Blooms
  • Graceful, Upright Shrub
  • Easy Care
