Special Attributes

'Blue Satin' is the best, strongest growing, blue flowering variety of Rose of Sharon we've grown in our gardens here in north-central Georgia. It is much better than 'Blue Bird', which turned out to be quite the weakling. Large, stunning, true-blue flowers are produced in abundance during summer, when we need soothing colors in the garden. The flowers are attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies. If you love true blue flowers, Blue Satin Rose of Sharon is sure to please!



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 8 to 10 feet tall with a spread to about 6 feet, Blue Satin 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.

Spacing:  4' for solid hedge; 8' for space between plants



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.
