1. Two-tone color. A dazzling combination of deep-pink petals with a dark-red eye makes Aphrodite Althea a standout among garden perennials. Each flower resembles a hollyhock blossom, only larger, with individual petals sporting a ruffled margin that makes the blooms flutter in the breeze!
2. Long bloom season. Unlike other hibiscus cultivars that have a short window of bloom, Aphrodite’s flowers keep coming over a long season, typically from June to September. Sometimes, the flowers persist ’til the first frost of autumn!
3. Hummingbird- and butterfly-friendly. You’ll wish you’d ordered more than one Aphrodite shrub when you see how many hummingbirds and butterflies it attracts! Be sure to plant it in a prominent spot where you can the antics of these tiny garden acrobats up close.
