HIBISCUS syriacus 'Diana'
Diana Rose-of-Sharon, Rose-of-Sharon
Pretty and summer-blooming, ‘Diana’ is a particularly nice rose-of-Sharon that produces large, white blooms in the heat of summer. This medium-sized, deciduous shrub is Asian in origin and has an upright, bushy, suckering habit. Throughout the growing season it has lustrous, lobed, palm-shaped leaves of medium green and from mid to late summer it produces large, open, funnel-shaped blooms of clean white. Unlike many other cultivars, ‘Diana’ produces little fruit and seed, so it does not self-sow.
Rose-of-Sharon grows best in full to partial sun and fertile loam with even moisture and good drainage. Easy to grow and reliable, ‘Diana’ makes a fine specimen plant and may be grouped as an informal hedge or screen.
