Description

Exceptionally large flowers! Looking more like a tropical hibiscus than a temperate plant, Ruffled Satin® rose of Sharon boasts rich pink, ruffled flowers accented by an intense burgundy-red eye. Large and showy, the overlapping flower petals form a large, appealing saucer shape. Its glossy green leaves and short internodes make for a very nice, full, bushy plant. Low seed-set is an added benefit.
