Proven Winners® says of this selection: "A delightfully unusual and beautiful dwarf Hibiscus paramutabailis x Hibiscus syriacus hybrid. This ball-shaped shrub has large rounded, pure lavender-purple flowers with soft ruffled edges and no center eye. Very dark green leaves provide striking contrast. Developed by Polly Hill Arboretum on Martha's Vineyard." We have been very impressed on how well this exquisite new selection has performed in our Deep South heat and humidity. Here it starts setting flower buds in early May and starts flowering by late May and continues through the growing season. It will reach 3-4 ft. Give it full to half day sun with a well drained soil. It responds best with uniform moisture.
