Purple Pillar® Rose of Sharon

A very fastigiate selection, Purple Pillar™ brings the durable easy growth of rose of Sharon to narrow spaces. Use this columnar plant for hedges or screens; it provides showy summer color for tight sites. The flowers are large and semi-doubled. Like other H. syriacus, this adaptable plant will tolerate black walnut and clay soils.
