Upright Habit, So Versatile!
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. Award-winning with its columnar habit, Hibiscus Purple Pillar is a bold perennial shrub perfect for adding desirable vertical accent to any garden. Sure to be a conversation piece.
