Easy-to-grow summer color!
Large, single lavender flowers are adorned with a lacy center to create an anemone-like bloom. Beautiful for use in a mixed container, or incorporated into a mixed border. A mass planting will create an easy-to-grow privacy screen with lots of summer color. Like all of the Chiffon® series, it has soft, graceful stems and a useful rounded habit.

The plant was well formed and growing strong in my backyard when we moved into our house. It is beautiful and attracts bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. We look forward to its bloom every year. In fact, we like this plat so much, we've decided to add one to the front yard too!CharlotteCaliforniaUnited States7 years ago
One of my favorite shrubs! The abundant flower display from June to September is absolutely beautiful! It is one of the last shrubs to leaf out in the spring, but the show it puts on in summer more than makes up for that. The only problem I've had with this shrub is when it gets about 5 ft, it gets top heavy and the harsh winter winds have made it lean, but we just straightened it up and staked it and it has been fine since then.Sara Long7 years ago
I have 2 Rose of Sharon treees in my front yard. I love them, and was considering purchasing another 1-2 plants. The flowers attract hummingbirds and bumblebees. I had to severely prune one of the trees last year--it had started to grow at a slant and was hitting my windows and side of my house. It grew back beautifully by this Summer. I enjoyed its blooms until a couple of weeks ago. These plants love the sun, and survived a brutal Summer where temperatures exceeded 100 degrees for over 2 weeks each day.Mary B.7 years ago

I planted this tree about 5 years ago and it is maybe 7 feet tall and has bloomed every year. I like it so much I will probably get the Blue Chiffon.AuntieMWashingtonUnited States8 years ago
