The Showtime Rose of Sharon or Hibiscus syriacus is a showy shrub that is very low maintenance once it has had time to settle in. The semi-double flowers are large, lush, and purple in color with a deep red eye and prominent stamens. Enjoy the blooms from mid to late summer. The flowers of a Rose of Sharon are always eye-catching, but the foliage of the Showtime cultivar also stands out. The leaves have randomly toothed edges and are predominantly green with yellow borders.

The branched, upright growth habit makes this shrub an excellent option to add height to a mixed bed. The dense form of the Showtime Rose of Sharon can create privacy in an outdoor area or obscure a fence. Grow the Showtime Rose of Sharon as a perennial in zones 5 through 9.

Showtime Rose of Sharon Care

Full sun is necessary for this beauty to bloom and thrive, so choose a spot that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight. Showtime prefers rich, well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. New plants need consistent water to become established, but mature plants develop drought tolerance and only need water during a dry spell. Apply a slow-release fertilizer in late winter or early spring to support young plants. Established plants only need fertilizer if the soil quality is poor.

The Showtime Rose of Sharon is a fast grower, so you can routinely prune the shrub in late winter or early spring to maintain the desired shape and size. This shrub blooms on new wood, and pruning during the summer will result in fewer flowers. This rose of Sharon is sterile and doesn’t self-seed.

Showtime Rose of Sharon Spacing

The Showtime Rose of Sharon stands 4 to 9 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide when established. Space shrubs 4 feet apart to create a dense planting, or give each shrub more space to create a focal point.

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.
