Raspberry Smoothie™ Hibiscus

Description
Tough, hardy and soil adaptable, Raspberry Smoothie produces double blooms in a deep berry-pink shade that brightens the dog days of summer, when little else is flowering in the garden. Often referred to as Rose of Sharon, this variety of the hardy hibiscus bears deep burgundy buds that open to vivid hot pink crepe-paper flowers. The contrast of its flowers against vibrant green foliage is sure to brighten the sunny areas of your 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. Planting in groups of three or more or in line as a privacy hedge heightens its impact. A butterfly and hummingbird magnet, this tough and hardy shrub is the ideal low-maintenance ornamental.
