Magenta Chiffon is an exquisite addition to the award-winning Chiffon Rose of Sharon series. Chiffon Rose of Sharon is an elegant take on a long-time favorite. They exhibit an elegant, naturally rounded habit that gracefully sways in the wind. Chiffon Rose of Sharon also produces more flowers over a longer period of time than other varieties. The large powder puff blooms cover the tall shrub with their regal deep magenta hue all summer long. This variety also sets fewer seeds than other Rose of Sharon, so won’t need to spend time pulling up seedlings.
Magenta Rose is up to the task of basking in the spotlight as a specimen plant or focal point. The abundant, colorful blooms and upright habit are certainly well suited for stealing the show. Other uses for this striking plant include privacy screens and colorful hedges. Hummingbirds love the rich magenta blooms as much as humans, so keep an eye out for the buzzing birds around the shrub.
Magenta Chiffon® Rose of Sharon Care
Rose of Sharon will bloom more prolifically in full sun sites. However, it can grow and flower in partially shaded areas. Avoid planting in heavily shaded locations, as you definitely won’t want to miss out on these flowers! A low-maintenance plant in zones 5-9, you won’t need to do much to keep Magenta Chiffon happy. Keep in mind that it tends to leaf out later in the spring than other shrubs, so stay patient. An annual application of compost or well-balanced fertilizer in the spring will support spring growth and summer bloom.
The naturally graceful growth habit is one of the many benefits of Chiffon Rose of Sharon. You won’t need to prune it to maintain its good looks. However, a bit of pruning here and there won’t harm the plant.
Magenta Chiffon® Rose of Sharon Spacing
Rose of Sharon can grow to be quite large in maturity, so pick your site wisely. It will also need plenty of space to produce its maximum amount of flowers. Plant 6’ apart to achieve a hedge or privacy screen, and 10’ apart to give it space as a specimen plant or focal point.
