Growing to heights of 8-10’ and widths reaching 5-6’, this tree is phenomenal as an accent to any garden space or used to create a hedge of beautiful blooms!
“I am the Rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.” No, this isn’t the same Rose of Sharon of the Bible, but our Rose of Sharon, or Althea, has probably been grown as an ornamental plant since biblical times. For a long time, Westerners thought this Rose of Sharon was also from the Middle East, because it had been cultivated there for so many years. It actually originated in China and India.

How To Plant Blushing Bride Rose of Sharon
Are you looking to give the Blushing Bride Rose of Sharon a forever home? Well, let's get growing! Plant this tree in locations that offer full sun, as full sun locations will promote amazing blooms during the growing season. Enjoying well-draining soils, if you have an area that pools water after receiving rain, it would be recommended to create a raised bed so as to not drown your tree or rot the roots.
How To Water
We recommend watering your Blushing Bride Rose of Sharon twice a week when first planted, ensuring the right amount of moisture in the soil. To check, simply test the soil with your finger - if the top inch of soil is dry it's time to water. We also recommend keeping an eye on local weather and water accordingly during periods of high heat, as well as drought.
How To Fertilize
Initially, when planting, you should feed your Blushing Bride Rose of Sharon. You can do this by mixing fertilizer into the planting site to boost the health, happiness and growth of your Rose of Sharon. Following this feeding we recommend applying fertilizer every spring, before the push of new growth to promote the best blooms possible and ensure a long and happy life!
How To Prune
When it comes to pruning your Blushing Bride Rose of Sharon, you may accomplish this task in late fall, after the drop of foliage, or in early spring before the tree breaks dormancy. Start by removing any dead or damaged branches in order to have a clear view of what you are working with. In this same process, it would be wise to remove any cross branches that may damage others or detract from the appearance of your Rose of Sharon. Keeping up with appearances, you may also remove any growth that formed in the wrong direction or prevents light and air circulation from reaching the entirety of the tree. When finished with this initial process, tip the branches to the node (the place where the flower blooms from) to your desired height and enjoy some lavish blooms!

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
