Summer belongs to bold, blooming plants, and Paraplu Pink Ink hibiscus is definitely that! This hybrid rose of Sharon spends summers bedecked with very large, very showy white and pink flowers. The star-like pink eye at the center of each bloom makes for a dazzling effect. Even though each individual flower lasts only one sweet summer day, the plant makes lots of buds for long-lasting color you can enjoy for months every season. Deep green foliage and an upright-yet-graceful habit make this rose of Sharon suitable for specimen plantings, flower gardens, even a showy hedge.

Top reasons to plant Paraplu Pink Ink rose of Sharon:

  • Flowers are larger and showier than conventional roses of Sharon.
  • Elegant, graceful habit that moves in the breeze - not stiff and awkward like other roses of Sharon.
  • Low maintenance and long blooming so you can enjoy the season.

Maintenance Notes:

Thanks to their naturally graceful habit, Paraplu roses of Sharon don't require much pruning. If you wish to prune them, however, early spring is the best time to do so. Note that rose of Sharon is quite late to leaf out in spring, so be patient with it.

We recommend full sun for rose of Sharon for the maximum amount of blooming and best color, but it can grow and flower reasonably well in partially shaded spots.
