Bull's Eye

This amazing novelty represents over 60 years of hybridizing effort that began with a once-blooming near-rose species that was yellow with a brown-red ‘eye’. The cranberry eye zone set at the base of each creamy white petal might remind you of Rose of Sharon and it keeps that novel marking until the flower finishes.The surprising twist for this unusual Shrub is SUPERB BLACKSPOT RESISTANCE. The bushy plant loves to grow and, in milder climates, may require some shaping to keep it in bounds. Certain to catch your customers’ eye.
