Hibiscus Syriacus ‘Aphrodite’

In the summer when most shrubs are finished flowering, Hibiscus syriacus ‘Aphrodite’ arrives to steal the show.  With large ruffled pink flowers and a deep wine-red center, these large showy blossoms pop against their deep green foliage.  Blooms are typically 4-5” and bloom for up to 4 months.  The deep green lustrous foliage of this shrub is just as showy as its blossoms with toothed edging.  The upright branched habit of this shrub is perfect for a hedge, screen, shrub border, or garden accent.  It may also be trained as a small tree or used in container gardens.  Once established, ‘Aphrodite’ can tolerate urban pollution and brief periods of drought.  It is also adaptable to a variety of climates.

Planting Instructions: Choose a location in full sun to partial shade with well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. During the first growing season, water deeply to establish a strong root system. Water weekly or more often in extreme heat or in containers. Once established, this plant with tolerate brief periods of drought. In the spring, apply fertilizer before new growth begins. After flowering, prune to promote new growth and shape the plant. In areas with colder climates, mulch the first winter and remove the following spring.
