Features

Many superlative qualities set the Chiffon® series of rose of Sharon apart from the rest: graceful, rounded habit. More flowers, for a longer time, and with better coverage of the plant. Powderpuff flowers that face outward like beaming, smiling faces. And now, richly colored Magenta Chiffon joins Lavender, Blue, White, and Pink for a full complement of effortless summer beauty. Whether you plant one striking specimen of your favorite variety or mix and match for a colorful collection, you will see that Chiffon roses of Sharon are anything but conventional.

Maintenance Notes: 

Thanks to their naturally graceful habit, Chiffon roses of Sharon don't require much pruning. If you wish to prune them, however, early spring is the best time to do so. Note that rose of Sharon is quite late to leaf out in spring, so be patient with it.

We recommend full sun for rose of Sharon for the maximum amount of blooming and best color, but it can grow and flower reasonably well in partially shaded spots.

Fun Facts: 

The Chiffon series was developed by Dr. Roderick Woods of England, who is also a world-reknown physicist with important contributions to motorcycle safety gear.
