Summer Ruffle Hibiscus
Twisted blooms are ruffle-tastic!
Give your garden a touch of the tropics this year with the wonderfully ruffled blooms of hardy Summer Ruffle Hibiscus (Hibiscus syriacus 'Aarticus'). From the foliage to the flowers, this shrub is an eye-catcher.
The blooms on Summer Ruffle are somewhere between dark pink and pale lavender with a cherry eye in the middle. They are double-layered with the center layer having a unique ‘twisted’ appearance that gives them the ruffled look of their name. The blooms keep coming from summer through fall. They are a completely different look for hardy hibiscus and are sure to stand out in the garden.
Even when they aren’t in bloom they are destined to stand out, though. Summer Ruffle’s foliage is a refreshing spring green trimmed in a cool creamy-white edge that gives the whole bush a ‘summer’ feel. They only grow 3-4 feet high and wide so they are the perfect size for summer containers and smaller garden beds and borders. Even if all you have is a balcony, you can grow this easy-care beauty.
They love the sun, don’t need a whole lot of water and handle heat and humidity well. The variegated foliage is a real visual treat and looks great with gold or dark-green leaved plants as companions. They will make Summer Ruffles shine.
