Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
HIBISCUS syriacus 'Lady Stanley'
Lady Stanley Rose-of-Sharon, Rose-of-Sharon
This has some of the most interesting flowers of all the rose-of-Sharons. The semi-double flowers of this deciduous, vase-shaped shrub are semi-double with larger outer petals and a flourish of smaller inner petals at the center. They are white with pink markings and ruby-red at the base. They flowers appear from midsummer through autumn, and the lobed green leaves turn dirty yellow at season's end.
Rose-of-Sharon grows best in full to partial sun and fertile loam with even moisture and good drainage. It is easy to grow and well-suited as an informal hedge or screen. Plant 'Lady Stanley' in a mixed shrub border or as a landscape specimen. Like all rose-of-Sharon, it tends to sucker but can easily be shaped with yearly pruning.
