Description

Early and Long Blooming with Double Flowers

A Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrubs variety, Hibiscus Starblast Chiffon™ Rose of Sharon is a showy, deciduous, flowering shrub offering summer interest. Blooming continuously from early summer to fall, Starblast Chiffon sets large, pure white double flowers with a full, tufted center atop a red and pink "eye" with long, veining "lashes." Borne on slender branches, the ephemeral flowers have a low seed set and very little pollen.

A Hibiscus syriacus, commonly called rose of Sharon, Starblast Chiffon is a multi-stemmed, herbaceous shrub with strong vigor and an upright, vase-shaped, spreading habit of attractive 3-lobed, coarsely toothed foliage. The plant can be trained as a small tree or espalier. It is an excellent specimen or foundation plant but is very effective massed or grouped as a hedge, screen, or a back of the bed or border plant.

Tough and remarkably easy to grow, rose of Sharon grows best in sunny locations with fertile, organically rich, moderately moist, well-draining soil, but it tolerates poor soils and some drought and is pH adaptable. Good air circulation is important for disease prevention and for best overall performance. Hibiscus is fairly pest and disease free; deer resistant; and heat, humidity (with good air circulation), and air pollution tolerant.

Hibiscus Starblast Chiffon has a naturally attractive form and only needs pruning to tidy up its shape or to maintain a desired size. Pruning back stems does encourages more blooms and can increase air circulation within the plant to help prevent disease, but pruning should be done sparingly, after flowering has finished. Removing up to ⅓ of the overall shrub creates a fuller bush with larger blooms. Keep in mind that these shrubs bloom directly on older wood or on shoots that come off old wood.
