The Q&A Archives: Sources for Lavender Single Hibiscus

Question: Is there such a thing as a lavender "single" hibiscus? I have seen doubles occasionally, but would like to know if a "single" exists. (Single, Double = in reference to the blooms.) Thanks.

Answer: These are single-flowered varieties of Hibiscus syriacus (Rose of Sharon): H.s.'Coelestis', which has light violet blooms streaked with red, is available through Mellinger's Inc. (2310 W. South Range Rd., North Lima, OH, 44425-9731, 216-549-9861). H.s. 'Meehanii', with purplish blooms, is available through Forestfarm (990 Tetherow Rd., Williams, OR 97544-9599, 541-756-4465; catalog $3).
