I love this plant so much. Once established, I never have to water it. I have it in a spot that gets average moisture and part sun (morning and evening sun, but it shaded by a tree midday. Mine is not seedless, however. But I don't mind - I give away or pick out the babies. But it's definitely not seedless!
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
This plant is hardy in zones 5 - 9
Zones are based on the lowest average temperature an area is expected to receive during the winter. They are used to determine whether a plant is likely to be perennial in your area. If your zone is equal to or higher than the zone listed for the plant, it will be hardy for you and thrive in your climate.
Finally - a blue rose of Sharon with no seeds!

I have 2 of these now and they are beautiful!!! The flowers are exceptional and a very pretty blue. I was looking for a seedless variety and found it! And I love it! I removed a previous Rose of Sharon that was very pretty due to the dropping and growing of many seeds in the wrong places every year that had to be constantly pulled out.Karen CadyKentuckyUnited States3 years ago
