Uses Notes: 

An excellent hardy hibiscus for the landscape. Can be trained into a small tree. Excellent for use in mixed containers and then removed for fall garden planting. Use in the mixed border or as a hedge.

Maintenance Notes: 

Grows in any soil unless it is either very dry or very wet. Prune in late winter or early spring. Can be heavily pruned. Prefers medium moisture. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application. A supplemental dose of liquid fertilizer may be needed in mid summer.

Large, single, soft blushing pink flowers with a prominent eye appear in late summer. Strong growing and long blooming, this is an easy to grow, adaptable plant that will thrive in most gardens.
