Rose of Sharon's have been a garden staple for many years. This single lavender variety is called 'Minerva' . 'Minerva' is an introduction of the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington, D.C. It has lavender flowers (4-5" diameter) with dark red eye spots. This cultivar is a sterile triploid that produces very few if any seed pods. #garden #shrub #nj #hibiscus #summerbloom
