Blueberry Smoothie™ Hibiscus

Description
When everything else in the garden begins to fade, Blueberry Smoothie™ will pop with gorgeous blue-purple flowers reminiscent of blueberry ice cream. Second only to its color is the captivating shape of its huge double blooms. Often referred to as the Rose of Sharon—crumpled paperlike hibiscus petals emerge in blossoms that look like a rose. The contrast of its remarkable flowers against vibrant green foliage is sure to brighten any area of the landscape. Add to the remarkable flowers the fact that this Hibiscus is sterile, eliminating the messy seed pods that invade your borders, and you have a summer-flowering shrub with enormous appeal. Create a stunning privacy hedge, or plant in a container to enjoy on your patio. A butterfly and hummingbird magnet, this is the ideal low-maintenance ornamental. It adds a formal look to an entrance or as a patio container plant. Hibiscus syriacus 'DS01BS' PP26662
