Blue Angel Rose of Sharon is remarkable for its large, almost true blue flowers that appear from mid-summer through fall. The large lavender-blue flowers have a purple throat in the middle of their characteristic hibiscus flowers. This shrub can be shaped into a small tree or left as a shrub, growing to 6 to 8 feet tall and 5 feet wide.
It prefers full sun for its best floral display and is drought tolerant once established, although it will appreciate some watering through the heat. Rose of Sharon’s have no significant pests or diseases. They work well as a small accent tree, large shrub, or large hedge.
