Great large shrub for landscape use, young plants can be used in containers but will need to be moved to the landscape as they mature. Also incredible when pruned into a small tree. This is a great addition to the mixed border, or can be a nice specimen.Maintenance Notes:
Blooms in summer. Grows in any soil unless it is either really wet or dry. Prune in early spring if desired. Prefers medium moisture.
Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer formulated for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application.Dark Lavender Chiffon® Hibiscus syriacus 'SMNHSPCL' USPP 33,568, Can PBRAF
