If you love Crape Myrtles, you'll all love Rose of Sharon. We consider Rose of Sharon one of the the most under-rated ornamental plants in the plant world. They are very easy to grow and require little to no maintenance. We have many Rose of Sharon planted in our gardens and rarely have to touch them. No insect or disease problems. No issues with heat or drought. The deer won't touch them...and best of all, the masses of beautiful flowers keep coming for months providing a constant show of color!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in an upright, columnar form 10 to 16 feet tall with a spread of 2 to 3 feet, the Purple Rose of Sharon has many uses in the landscape. It is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings or as a narrow hedge or screen where space is limited. Also great for accentuating entryways or as a vertical accent anywhere in the sunny landscape. Plant one near the patio or other outdoor living spaces so you can enjoy the flowers and the butterflies and hummingbirds that will visit them. 

Suggested Spacing:  2 to 2.5 feet apart for a solid hedge or screen; 5 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

The Purple Pillar Rose of Sharon is very easy to grow and maintain. Simply plant them where the sun shines most of the day and in a moist but well-drained soil of average fertility. Some light shade is tolerated but too much shade and plants will become leggy and flowering is diminished. Constantly soggy or wet soil or standing water can be problematic. Established plants are quite drought tolerant. Requires little if any pruning though a stray branch can be removed any time of year.
