Dark Lavender Chiffon from PROVEN WINNERS displays rich, dark purple flowers all summer on dark green foliage. It is heat, drought, and salt-tolerant once established, attracts pollinators, and resist deer. This is a great large shrub for landscape use, young plants can be used in containers but will need to be moved to the landscape as they mature. Also incredible when pruned into a small tree. This is a great addition to the mixed border, or can be a nice specimen. It sets few to no seed so it will not invade your garden. Prune to shape in early spring if desired. Fertilize every spring with PROVEN WINNERS Continuous Release Plant Food. Note that rose of Sharon is quite late to leaf out in spring, so be patient with it.
