Gardening in mostly deep shade in Zone 6. My passion is adding more native plants to my landscape & clearing out the foreign invasives.

Hibiscus syriacus 'Oiseau Bleu' syn. Hibiscus syriacus 'Blue Bird'

Rescued my sorry-looking shrub from where it was struggling to be seen over the irises, and plonked it in the center of the main flowerbed. It's flanked by pink daylilies, dropwort and more phlox than you'd shake a stick at. The flowers should really show up against that hideous fence...

All the flowers are the same, but it's also true that no two are the same #trueblue

First flower open this year; it was still a closed bud when I left for work and when I got home it already looked like this ☹ #trueblue

I wonder if the Japanese beetles got to it before it opened fully. Except I don't see a single one @novicegardenlover
