Lil' Kim® Rose of Sharon

Hibiscus syriacus 'Antong Two' PP #19,547; CPBR #3399

SKU
07449
A unique dwarf Rose of Sharon with a refined, upright habit perfect for small gardens and containers. Dark green foliage backs the stunning summer flowers that last up to 3 days, compared to the day-long blooms typical of the species. The crisp white blooms punctuated by a bold maroon eye are less likely to produce viable, unwanted seedlings. Deciduous.
