Hibiscus syriacus 'Jimmy's Double Pink'

The large, double pink, carnation-like flowers are produced in great abundance all summer long on this easily grown deciduous shrub.

Jimmy's Double Pink Althea or Rose of Sharon is a much loved plant that came to us via John's mother's prized Althea bush when Jimmy, their 4 year old son, picked his mother, Bonnie, a flower and she rooted the cutting some 40 years ago and it still graces our gardens to this day. The flowers, even though double, attract bees, hummingbirds and the occassional butterfly. Item# 810
