A Bit More

This Australian native evergreen shrub is prized for its lavender-blue to deep purple hibiscus-like flowers. Blooming nearly all year, the 5-8 foot tall shrub has an upright habit and deeply cut and pubescent dark green leaves. The flowers are 4-5 inches across with large luminescent petals that fade after a few days. Given full sun and little to moderate water with fast-draining soil, it will not disappoint. They are drought tolerant once established and hardy to 25-30°F. Occasional deep pruning will keep this shrub from becoming untidy or rangy.
