Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
HIBISCUS syriacus 'Woodbridge'
Rose-of-Sharon, Woodbridge Rose-of-Sharon
The bold rose-of-Sharon, 'Woodbridge' is vigorous and summer-blooming. It is a deciduous shrub with a dense, bushy, vase-shaped habit. It produces numerous large, single flowers in the heat of summer. Each bloom is fuchsia-pink, dark red in the center and has a bright yellow floral tube. They bloom 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. ‘Woodbridge’ makes a nice addition to mixed shrub borders or may be planted as landscape specimen. All non-sterile rose-of-Sharon self-sow and many tend to sucker but can be easily shaped and restrained with yearly pruning.
