Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 5a, where this Rpse of Sharon Hibiscus is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

Aphrodite is the best, strongest growing pink variety of Rose of Sharon, also known as Hibiscus or Althea, we've come across. It's a personal favorite in the Wilson brothers own gardens. An abundance of very large, truly stunning pink flowers centered with red are produced during the summer and into fall. The abundance of large flowers look more like tropical hibiscus than other rose of sharon and are highly attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. No need to worry about seedlings or sprouts coming up from the roots. We haven't seen this bothersome trait on this variety.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 8 to 10 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, the Aphrodite Rose of Sharon is ideal for use as a large shrub or small tree. We think Rose of Sharon are most useful in the landscape as a focal point specimen. That said, they are also nice grouped or used as attractive, colorful hedges in landscape borders. Remove lower branches from your Rose of Sharon and you have a stunning small tree that fits perfectly in smaller garden spaces, home foundation plantings, around patios and other outdoor living spaces, or just about anywhere in the sunny landscape.




Cultural Preferences

Rose of Sharon are easy to grow and maintain in most any average, moist but well-drained soil and plenty of sunshine. Some shade will be tolerated but flowering won't be as heavy and plants may be leggier and tend to flop. Maintenance is minimal requiring little or no pruning and plants are quite drought tolerant when established.
