I love this little plant. I planted it one year ago and this year it is full of flowers. I also have a pesky doe deer around that is driving me nuts and delightfully doesn't seem to like this plant. Jim Cobb

Yes, you have room for a rose of Sharon!
Pollypetite® is a new hybrid rose of Sharon that anyone has space for. It naturally grows with a rounded, 3-4' (.9-1.2 m) tall and wide habit without pruning. In summer, it's loaded with lavender-pink blooms floating over the handsome dark blue-green foliage. This unique hibiscus is nearly seedless, so no nuisance seedlings will be popping up all over your yard. It's a reliable, easy-care way to enjoy color for months in the summertime.
Top three reasons to grow Pollypetite rose of Sharon:
1. Dwarf habit means it works in any sized landscape.
2. Large, lavender-pink flowers contrast with dark foliage.
3. Nearly seedless, so no nuisance seedlings popping up everywhere.Long BloomingDeadheading Not NecessaryAttracts:BeesResists:DeerSmall or Miniature

Like most rose of Sharon, Pollypetite needs no special care. Plant in full sun for the most flowers. If you wish to prune, do so in early spring, just as the new growth is beginning to appear on the stems. Fertilize in early spring before new growth begins if desired.Pollypetite® Hibiscus sp.

This Rose of Sharon is unbelievable. A Fantastic grower, beautiful flowering, easy maintenance and almost a perfect plant. I highly recommend this hibiscus to anyone considering it.Karen greene, Texas, United States, 27 weeks ago
Cute little plant and had blooms on of when I got it, that start at light pink and fade to a lavender color. But the plant is still really little like it is not growing. Hope it picks up next year this is the first summer I've had the plant and hope it turns out as beautiful as the pictures.Patricia, Texas, United States, 1 year ago
