No room for a traditional Hibiscus? This statuesque beauty with its super-narrow upright habit, just 2-3 wide, has unlimited landscape potential tall narrow hedges, screens, entry ways, formal gardens or simply a quirky accent. Jam-packed throughout the summer with semi-double lavender flowers with a red eye. No need to prune unless a controlled height is desired. Seeds are sterile, so none of the rampant seeding the older species can exhibit.
