Special Attributes

Featuring an abundance of bold, double flowers with white petals surrounding a dark red throat from mid summer to early fall, the Morning Star is the best and strongest growing white Rose of Sharon, Hibsicus syriacus, we've come across. Plant this one and the hummingbirds will come. Forest green, lobed leaves are attractive throughout the season on what can be grown as a shrub or small tree with an upright spreading habit of growth.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 10 to 12 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide, the Morning Star Rose of Sharon is ideal for use as a specimen or in groupings in sunny landscape and flowering shrub borders and home foundation plantings. As this Rose of Sharon grows taller, lower branches can be removed to form a small tree that serves well as a highly attractive and colorful focal point specimen tree. A fine addition to hummingbird gardens, cottage gardens and white theme gardens.




Cultural Preferences

Rose of Sharon are easy to grow and maintain in a moist but well-drained soil of average fertility 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. Except to remove a stray or broken branch, Rose of Sharon require little or no pruning. Plants are quite drought tolerant when established.
