Rose Of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus 'Minerva') is a larval host plant for the Grey Hairstreak butterfly. A native to China and India, Rose of Sharon 'Minerva' produces lavender blossoms in mid to late summer. The blossoms are attractive to hummingbirds. 'Minerva' does well in average to moist soil in part sun. Be on the look-out for volunteers, as this pretty flowering tree self-seeds readily.
