This virtually unknown Chinese species is genetically situated between Hibiscus paramutabilis and Hibiscus syriacus (Rose of Sharon). The 8' tall stems remain woody and are clothed during the growing season with glossy, dark green, maple-like leaves. The stems are adorned with 4" widely cupped lavender flowers, highlighted by a bright red central blotch, from June through the summer...a hummingbird favorite. If you get bored with your plant, various parts can be used as a diuretic, an expectorant, or to reduce bloody stools. I often have those when I sit too close while weeding around my agaves.
