Hibiscus 'Lady Stanley' Overview

Hibiscus syriacus 'Lady Stanley' is a bushy, densely branched, deciduous shrub with dark green lobed foliage. In late summer to autumn, its double white-pink flowers - with darker pink centres - stand out well against the foliage. The flowers are abundant, long-lasting and attractive to pollinators. Commonly known by the names Hibiscus 'Lady Stanley' and Rose of Sharon 'Lady Stanley', this lovely cultivar likes a sheltered position in full sun and moist, well-drained soil that is on the alkaline - rather than acid - side of neutral. Hibiscus syriacus 'Lady Stanley' is suited to most flower borders and garden styles and it is often seen in cottage and coastal gardens. It is also suitable for large patio containers (but do not allow to dry out). Low maintenance, it requires little or no pruning and is hardy.
