Add some true blue beauty to your landscape with this long-lived, easy care shrub! Large single lacy blue flowers give a commanding performance when they nearly smother the branch tips for weeks in summer on this robust shrub, which reaches 8-12 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide. Many different pollinators and hummingbirds will enjoy the flowers too, but deer tend to pass it by.
Blue Chiffon® Rose of Sharon loves the heat of summer and is very drought tolerant once established. It also shrugs off salt, making it useful for planting next to sidewalks, driveways and streets. With its upright form, Blue Chiffon® is useful as a back-of-the-border anchor plant and is suitable for hedging, although it drops its leaves in winter. Go ahead and shear it after flowering or even through winter if you want to keep a clipped form as it flowers on new wood.
Blue Chiffon Rose of Sharon Care
When siting Rose of Sharon shrubs, more sun is better! They will take a little shade, but the flower show will be a little less exuberant than in full sun. They aren’t fussy about soil either, any average garden soil will do. If you want to apply a slow-release granular fertilizer for flowering shrubs in spring, you’ll have that many more blooms, but it’s not necessary to keep the shrub healthy and flowering well. Watering is important when the shrub is first planted and for a couple months thereafter, especially if rain is scarce, but once established they are very drought tolerant.
Pruning Blue Chiffon Rose of Sharon should normally be done in late winter or early spring. Pruning is not necessary, because the plant blooms on new wood. But some gardeners like to prune to help rejuvenate the plant or to help keep a small shape. Trim dead or diseased growth at anytime of the year, so it doesn't impact other parts of the plant.
Blue Chiffon Rose of Sharon Spacing
If you are planting a hedge or mass, space these plants 6-7 feet apart center on center. If you are planting a single Blue Chiffon® Rose of Sharon in a garden bed, pull adjoining shrubs and perennials 4 feet away on all sides so they are not engulfed as the Rose of Sharon matures. Also, consider the mature height of 8-12 feet and the potential to shade adjacent plants.
