Say hello to the first dwarf Rose of Sharon!
Lil' Kim is unique little shrub with dainty little white flowers punctuated with a showy red eye. The plant appear to be a polyploid because it has thick, dark green leaves and the flowers last for three days instead of the typical one day before falling. Creates many new landscape and garden uses; great for mixed containers, mixed perennial beds or for around decks or entry gardens. Developed by noted plantsman Dr. Shim of South Korea.
