Landscape & Garden Uses

With an upright habit 10 to 12 feet tall and 4 to 6 feet wide, the Blue Chiffon Rose of Sharon is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or as a hedge in sunny landscape borders and home foundation plantings. As this rose of sharon grows taller lower branches can be removed to form an attractive tree useful as a stunning focal point specimen in small landscape spaces. Pruning is best done before new leaves emerge in late winter or early spring.

Suggested Spacing:  4 to 5 feet apart for solid hedge; 10 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Rose of Sharon are very easy to grow and maintain. Simply plant them where the sun shines most of the day. Some light shade is tolerated but too much shade and plants will become leggy and flowering is diminished. They are not too particular about soil type and very drought tolerant once established. They require little if any pruning, though a stray or broken branch can be removed any time of year.
