Give your garden a touch of the tropics this year with the wonderfully ruffled blooms of hardy Summer Ruffle™ Hibiscus (Hibiscus syriacus 'Aarticus'). From the foliage to the flowers, this shrub is an eye-catcher.
The blooms on Summer Ruffle™ are somewhere between dark pink and pale lavender with a cherry eye in the middle. They are double-layered with the center layer having a unique 'twisted' appearance that gives them the ruffled look of their name. The blooms keep coming from summer through fall. They are a completely different look for hardy hibiscus and are sure to stand out in the garden.
Even when they aren't in bloom they are destined to stand out, though. Summer Ruffle™'s foliage is a refreshing spring green trimmed in a cool creamy-white edge that gives the whole bush a 'summer' feel. They are the perfect size for summer containers and smaller garden beds and borders. Even if all you have is a balcony, you can grow this easy-care beauty.
They love the sun, don't need a whole lot of water and handle heat and humidity well. The variegated foliage is a real visual treat and looks great with gold or dark-green leaved plants as companions. They will make Summer Ruffle™ shine.
