    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.

    • I ordered 2 of these and planted them early spring of 2020. The plants are extremely healthy. My lawn guy accidently mowed them about a month after I planted them. I was afraid they would die, but they quickly grew back to about 8 inches tall and started blooming. This year they are blooming prolifically. I would give them 5 stars except the color isn't as it appears on the website. They're not as bright, more of a purple color.

    • They prune the plant before they shipped. It was pruned really short and the other plant I purchased wasn’t. There wasn’t very many leaves on the plant and I tried everything to stop the leaves from turning yellow one by one until there were no longer any leaves. I don’t normally kill the plants that I order and the other plant is doing very well. I have purchased Proven Winners plants at local nurseries and they have done very well. This plant is suppose to be beautiful and I would love to have it, but if they prune it again I am concerned to order it again. Right now I am living in Colorado, but moving back home to South Louisiana where there is humidity that plants love. Maybe I’ll just look to local nurseries that carry Proven Winner. I am very disappointed about this plant.

    • I ordered this plant online and received it in April 2020. Its now August. So far, I have not seen a single leaf growing in that plant. (Forget blooms.) The plant has not died either. It is just there as frozen. All other plants/shrubs that were planted at the same time are full of blooms now. Something is wrong with that plant!! Totally disappointed. :-(
