    • I brought this Rose of Sharon from your company about 2 years ago. For the first year, I had it planted in a pot, It did not do very well. Planted it in the ground and this year it has been blooming these beautiful blueish flowers. I have brought 5 Rose of Sharons from you and they are all doing great and blooming. I will be buying more!

    • I’m always a little nervous ordering plants online because you never know what you’re going to get but I was pleasantly surprised with this Rose of Sharon. It came in with some small black dots on a few leaves and chalked it up to a fungus from the moisture from the trip to my address. It was carefully packaged. I removed the affected leaves and planted it in front of my place and now after a month here in zone 7, beginning of June, it is absolutely stunning. Totally worth the wait. I also saw the Lavendar Chiffon at a local box store and thought the color was beautiful as well. More of a periwinkle. This and the Pink Chiffon will be my next purchase. I want to collect them all!!!

    • Imagine a deer at dinner, eating shish kebabs, cleaning off the skewer in one try, like a cartoon. That’s how I imagine the deer eating my rose of Sharons. I can disguise them well, but not completely. They must be divine. Samesies for my quince.

    • We bought this plant on a sidewalk sale of a grocery store and didn't have a lot of hope for it since we are in a Cleveland Ohio suburb and this is a Hibiscus. We planted this tree/bush at the corner of our house about ten years ago and it remains maintenance free with the exception of having to trim it back because it is such a vigorous grower. Deer have destroyed most things in our yard, and it's possible they may snack on this plant but it doesn't phase it - this plant is about 10 feet tall (was about 3 feet tall when we bout it) and just keeps going. I highly recommend this for colder climates looking for a hardy bloomer!

    • Excellent choice. very cold hardy, beautiful long lasting flowers, produces lots of seeds, best blue color of any of the strain. If you like Hibiscus, you should switch to Rose of Sharon ""Hibiscus syriacus." they are heat tolerant and cold tolerant down to -20 F. Hibiscus syriacus are florabunda in most cases, once they start blooming they keep going. One drawback to Hibiscus syriacus since the are florabunda, continuously blooming you get a lot of falling blooms. However, there is not many prettier flowers so prolific that you can enjoy in the south for so long of a season.

    • I planted an entire row of these, as they were advertised as good for a hedge and deer resistant. The deer ate them all down to a single bare twig. Pretty sure they are all dead.

    • This plant is beautiful. It had buds on it when I planted it and the plant started blooming. The flowers are gorgeous. HOWEVER, this plant is not deer resistant at all. Mine has been eaten down to the soil by deer. So now I've lost a shrub. Very disappointed about that.
