Blue Satin Rose of Sharon Tree Form
The summer garden is full of a riot of colors. Red roses, yellow coneflowers, orange marigolds, purple petunias. But you know what your garden really needs? The blues.
It specifically needs the blue provided by Blue Satin Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus 'Marina'). This hardy hibiscus comes back every year with flower color that is difficult to describe. Not true blue, not lavender, not purple. They are the color of the sky just after the sun has dipped below the horizon. They are the color you see just below the surface of a clear lake. They are the color of the water splashing in an Italian fountain. In other words, they are unforgettable. Once you own one you’ll understand.
Blue Satin is a summer bloomer that is covered in flowers on top of gracefully swaying stems. The flowers keep coming in a steady stream all summer, too. This is the hibiscus tree form, so it excels in a sunny pot by the pool, the front door, or the patio. Under-plant it with any of those riotous colored plants above and watch Blue Satin tame them beautifully. Rose of Sharon is deciduous, so it will lose its foliage in the winter, but it leaves out quickly in the spring.
Give Blue Satin Rose of Sharon tree plenty of sunlight and plenty of room to grow and you will be glad that you have the blues, too!
