I have an advertisement for 3 colored (red, white, blue) Rose of Sharon Bush, from a competing company but it does not have the hardiness zones. It just says "hardy". I live in zone 3 to 4. Do you offer such a shrub that is hardy to this zone or is it unwise to order at all?

Unfortunately, Rose of Sharon (Hibisucs syriacus) of any color is not hardy in a climate that cold. It is only hardy to about zone 5. Good thing you asked!
