Hibiscus syriacus triple purple form

3'' bluish-lavender peony-like flowers are borne in summer on this vigorous upright to vase-shaped deciduous flowering shrub. A very uncommon combination of flower color and form of the popular Rose of Sharon.

This durable shrub is tolerant of a wide variety of soil types, is moderately drought tolerant once well established (though it will flower more with adequate moisture), and will provide many years of enjoyment with its procession of summer flowers.
