Design Ideas This 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.
Flower Color Pink
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Viburnum (Viburnum); Spirea (Spiraea); Fountain Grass (Pennisetum); Potentilla (Potentilla); pSmoke Tree (Cotinus)
CARE
Care Adaptable to most well-drained soils except very wet or dry. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates brief periods of drought. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Prune after flowering to shape.
