Aphrodite Rose of Sharon

Hibiscus syriacus 'Aphrodite'

SKU
00211
An eye-catching deciduous shrub that produces little to no seed, which means an abundance of nearly continuous, exceptional flowers over a long bloom season. The heavily ruffled, clear pink blooms have a deep red eye. The densely branched habit with thick, deep green foliage is perfect for a hedge or screen, and is easily trained as a small tree.
