Purple Hibiscus Description

Purple Hibiscus grows well in zones 5 through 9

 The Purple hibiscus is a hardy flowering shrub named purple cup-shaped flowers. It is a native of India and Asia and is now grown worldwide. 

 This plant is a low-maintenance shrub that grows well in Zones 5-9. Though it tends to leaf out a little later in the spring than other shrubs, it looks exceptionally healthy even into the hottest parts of Summer. This shrub will look its best when planted in full sun and kept in moist ground. A little pruning of older branches and flower deadheading will keep this shrub colorful throughout the season. 

Purple Hibiscus grows to a height between 10 and 15 feet.

At its full size, the Purple shrub grows to a height between 10 and 15 feet and has a spread of 6 feet, making it a great choice to plant near walkways, patio gardens, and pool decks. Its light purple flowers that grow up to 5 inches wide are red on the inside, a vibrant color that encircles their white pistils. Its leaves grow three to four inches long and are a bright waxy green color in spring that darkens up a bit in mid-summer.

This shrub has a slow to medium growth rate and needs moist but well-drained soil. It is relatively easy to grow, making it an excellent plant for budding gardeners. It adapts to most soil types and does not need to be fertilized. The Rose of Sharon can be cultivated from seeds and stem cuttings for the more advanced gardener. For a colorful border down a driveway or around a house, you should plant these shrubs at least six feet apart to allow maximum growth of individual plants. These shrubs are shipped bare roots and ready for planting.
