(Rose of Sharon) A truly unique Rose of Sharon, POLLYPETITE® has a compact, mounding habit. Standing 3-4 foot tall and wide, POLLYPETITE® is a perfect size for borders, foundations or in the garden. Large, crisp, clean lavender purple flowers are edged in a lightly ruffled edge. A unique thing for this Rose of Sharon, there is no red/magenta eye. The leaves are darker green in color and resemble cut leaf maples. In mid summer the beautiful blooms appear putting on a show. Deer resistant, and attracts butterflies, POLLYPETITE® was developed by Polly Hill at the Arboretum on Martha’s Vineyard. POLLYPETITE® is a PROVEN WINNERS® COLORCHOICE® Flowering Shrub.
