The Violet Satin® Rose of Sharon features masses of large blooms with blousy, soft purple petals. The showy, tropical appearance is unexpected for such a highly drought- and cold-tolerant shrub. This shrub also tolerates dry conditions, and it blooms in heat and is very forgiving in salty and windy locations near the ocean. This deciduous member of the hibiscus family blooms for weeks in mid to late summer. Its deep green foliage adds the perfect backdrop for summer-blooming perennials. 

Hibiscus syriacus ‘Violet Satin’ is highly attractive to local beneficial pollinators and hummingbirds. On the other hand, deer are rarely known to browse on the foliage or flower buds when more desirable plants are available. Plant this shrub in the back of a pollinator garden bed or as a mid-layer for a traditional cottage garden. Violet Satin® is a sterile cultivar that does not set seed like other varieties. The shrub is self-cleaning and any spent flowers can be pruned back in late winter before the new season’s growth begins. 

Violet Satin® Rose of Sharon Care

Rose of Sharon requires full sun exposure for a minimum of 6 hours a day. Shade late in the day is preferred if you garden in a southern climate. Violet Satin grows well in average soil with a neutral pH. Fertilize with a slow-release formula for flowering shrubs early in the spring as the new foliage emerges. Water deeply and infrequently for the first season or two to establish a deep root system. Supplemental watering with drip irrigation or soaker hoses is preferred to overhead watering to keep the foliage dry. 

Prune Violet Satin® Rose of Sharon early in the spring to control its overall size and shape. The flowers bloom on new wood, and over time, the shrub may only flower at the very ends of the branches. To counteract this, cut back the shrub hard every 3-4 years or as needed. Pruning out one-third of the branches every year will maintain the height of the plant while encouraging fresh new growth at the base. Deadheading is not required.

Violet Satin® Rose of Sharon Spacing

Violet Satin will reach 12 feet high with a moderate spread of 8 feet. The large size makes it a great addition to any mixed informal hedge. Space plants 7 feet from each center when planting in groups. The wide spacing allows each root system to access sufficient nutrients and moisture. Good air circulation around each plant also lowers the risk of pests and diseases

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.
