"Lucy" Rose of Sharon is a late-summer blooming Hibiscus that is not only surprisingly gorgeous, but also among the most resilient ornamental flowering shrubs grown today! The outline of the light-pink blossoms are of a classic and simple floral beauty, yet the ruffled petals contained in the heart of these flowers add just the perfect touch of modern elegance to this plant. These fluffy light-pink flowers actually bloom double as well, meaning that for every flower bud which appears, two flowers blossom together! The serrated light-green leaves are quite similar to and of the same pattern as oak leaves, providing the perfect ornamental backdrop to these diamond-shaped blossoms. "Lucy" Rose of Sharon blossoms may appear delicate, but the truth is, they are anything but fragile! This hardy shrub is highly deer-resistant, heat and drought tolerant, cold-hardy down to -15° F, as well as tolerant of high humidity. This flowering shrub is highly resistant to the spots and mildew which occur on most shrubs in climates with high humidity. "Lucy" is both beautiful and low-maintenance, and quite possibly the perfect "plant-and-forget" flowering shrub. All too often, spring flowers get the most attention of all since they signal the shift to warmer temperatures and vibrant summer colors. If you're looking to extend the colorful floral shows in your landscape past the typical spring timeline, without adding extra maintenance to your landscaping routine, then the "Lucy" Rose of Sharon Hibiscus is perfect for you!
