As you take that much needed rest on your patio, your favorite drink in hand, gaze upon this gorgeous little plant with the plum-violet flowers! Be ready to share her with your butterflies and hummingbirds.

Lil’ Kim® Violet Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus 'SHIMRV24' PP#26374) is one of the most stunning little shrubs around! This is compact, 3-4 feet tall and wide, and will fit just about anywhere in your landscape.

Lil’ Kim is compact, vase-shaped and very elegant anywhere you plant her. The gorgeous plum-violet flowers are 3 inches across and adorned with a dark red throat. She blooms from summer to fall and each flower lasts for three days.

The foliage is broadly ovate, starting out in late spring as pale yellow-green and then becoming dark green for summer. Fall turns the foliage to yellow for the final show of the season!

Perfect for sunny beds and borders, containers, small gardens and courtyards. Will be perfect as hedges and screens.

She loves to be planted in full sun to part shade with average, medium moisture, well-drained organically rich soil but will also tolerate poor soil. Flower production is best in full sun. She is tolerant of drought, urban conditions, heat and humidity. Deer don’t prefer this hardy shrub.

If you need to prune Lil’ Kim, the best time is in the spring. Pruning back 2-3 buds in late winter may produce bigger blooms.
