Product Description

Purple Rose Of Sharon

Purple Rose Of Sharon-Hibiscus syriacus

The Purple Rose of Sharon is a hardy flowering shrub named for its purple cup-shaped flowers. It is a native of India and Asia and is now grown worldwide. 

The Rose of Sharon is a low-maintenance shrub that grows well in Zones 5-9, though it tends to leaf out a little later in the Spring than other shrubs, it looks especially healthy even into the hottest parts of Summer. It will look its best when planted in full sun and kept in moist ground. A little pruning of older branches and flower deadheading will keep this shrub colorful throughout the season. 

At its full size, the Purple Rose of Sharon grows to a height between 10 and 15 feet and has a spread of about 6 feet, making it a great choice to plant near walkways, patio gardens, and pool decks. Its light purple flowers that grow up to 5 inches wide are red on the inside, a vibrant color that encircles their white pistils. Its leaves grow three to four inches long and are a bright waxy green color in spring that darkens up a bit in mid-summer.

The Purple Rose of Sharon has a slow to medium growth rate and needs moist but well drained soil. It is relatively easy to grow, which makes it a great plant for the budding gardener. It adapts to most types of soil and does not need to be fertilized. For the more advanced gardener, the Rose of Sharon can be cultivated from seeds as well as from stem cuttings. For a colorful border down a driveway or around a house, these shrubs should be planted at least six feet apart in order to allow for maximum growth of individual plants. Roses of Sharon shrubs are shipped bare roots and ready for planting.
