Aphrodite Hardy Hibiscus Standard Tree

Description
Fall in love with the large 4-5" flowers with prominent dark red eyes—you'll have plenty of time, they bloom generously for up to four months or more, from midsummer to frost. The dark green, heavily textured foliage remains a lustrous green well into fall. Growing 6-8' tall with a similar spread, it can be grown alone or set into a border for a screen or hedge. It's very tolerant of a wide range of soils. This variety is noted for its compact growth habit, ease of culture and reliability throughout multiple climates. It'll take cold northern winters and searing southern summers in stride. Deer tend to avoid. Hibiscus syriacus 'Aphrodite'

Large, clear colored flowers with overlapping petals are produced continuously through-out the summer and fall with no lapse. The foliage shows none of the yellowing in mid summer that is typical of diploid Hibiscus. The lustrous dark green leaves remain on the plant well into late fall. This variety is also noted for its compact, erect growth habit, ease of culture and reliability.
