Vigorous and summer-blooming, Rose-of-Sharon is a large, deciduous shrub that originates from Asia. It has an upright, bushy habit and a tendency to spread and seed itself in, if given the opportunity. Throughout the growing season it has lustrous, lobed, palm-shaped leaves of medium green. From mid to late summer it produces medium to large, open, funnel-shaped blooms that have a papery appearance. These may be white, lavender, red, pink or purple, depending on the cultivar. Double and semi-double selections are available.
Rose-of-Sharon grows best in full to partial sun and fertile loam with even moisture and good drainage. It is easy to grow and well-suited as an informal hedge or screen. More select cultivars, like the seedless, white-flowered ‘Diana’, make nice additions to mixed shrub borders or may be planted as landscape specimens.
