Design IdeasThis hardy shrub is an important source of late-summer color in cottage gardens, beds and borders. Its double pink, pompom flowers are very different from Hybiscus' typical tubular blossoms. Use in romantic country gardens or where its upright form will cover unattractive views, utilities and crawl-space openings. Makes a very good hedge to screen sections of the garden. Set at the back of the bed to combine with other flowering shrubs that blossom earlier in the season.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, shear annually after flowering.Pruning time: winter.
