Most gardens can use a boost in the middle of the summer. Around July Most perennials are slowing down from the heat, but not the Aphrodite Rose of Sharon. This semi woody shrub is fully hardy, but has gorgeous tropical looking flowers that can be up to 5inches in diameter! The Aphrodite Rose of Sharon keeps blooming during the hottest days of summer due to its sterile blooms. 

Regular deadheading is not required, although it will help to keep Aphrodite tidy. Rose of Sharon can be grown as a multi-stemmed shrub or is easily trained into a standard tree form. Container growing or garden bed growing suit Rose of Sharon equally. This shrub can also be used effectively as an informal, flowering hedge along a fenceline, patio edge or along a driveway.

Aphrodite Rose of Sharon Care

The perfect site for the Aphrodite Rose of Sharon is one that has well drained soil, average texture soil, neutral pH and full sun to part shade. What an easy plant! Watering is very important until Rose of Sharon fully establishes itself. As this shrub matures it will become more drought tolerant. Mulching with leaves or organic compost will help to bulk up the soil and retain moisture over time. 

Pruning is very easy with Rose of Sharon. This shrub is deciduous and is best pruned at the end of winter when the overall shape can be seen without foliage. Cutting out dead, dying, diseased or diagonal branches will help to keep a neat shape and make way for vigorous new spring growth. Fertilizing is also done early in the spring. Use a well balanced, slow release feed that is formulated for blooming shrubs and roses.

Aphrodite Rose of Sharon Spacing

The mature size of the Aphrodite Rose of Sharon is quite large for a shrub. A height of 8-12 feet and a width of 6-10 feet. If you plan to grow this shrub to its full size as a hedge, space plants at 8 feet on center. The overall height can be kept much smaller by reducing the length of branches as the season progresses. Rose of Sharon produces blooms on the current season's wood growth, so blooming will not be interrupted.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
