    The crisp white flowers of White Chiffon® rose of Sharon make a cool, refreshing oasis in the landscape that is especially effective on summer nights, when they seem to shine out from the plant.

All of the Chiffon® series naturally grows with a useful rounded habit and soft graceful stems. 

    Top reasons to grow White Chiffon rose of Sharon:

    - Extra large white flowers are especially showy at night

    - Sets little to no seed so no nuisance weeds to pull out

    • Ordered this plant through Home Depot.com on July 1. It was delivered 15 days after ordering it. Plant looked stressed out as in dehydrated, with broken branches, yellow leaves, and most of buds broken. I planted it in good soil and nurtured since July 15, 2017. It is planted in a sheltered area that gets morning sun and filtered in the afternoon. I took care of it daily! It bloomed some, but flowers are small and shrivelled quite quickly. Also, flowers have ANTS! Have not seen this in other flowering shrubs I've grown, except peonies. Also, plant is not deer resistant. I put deer proof granules around the area where it is planted; deer nibled on the tips, regardless. I am not happy with this plant. But yesterday, I was told by Home Depot online customer service that the warranty period only covers 90 days and it has expired as of October 1, 2017. I really wish to return this plant, or get some credit for it. What do you advice? Thanks, (360) 337-0861 ceciliakelloggkilmer@gmail.co

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • I originally had 3 of these in large pots, but 2 of them didn't make it, so I moved the survivor to a spot in the garden as a specimen plant last fall. It did well in my zone 7 garden, but the summer was very hot and dry. Now that Sept is here and it has cooled off and we've had more rain, it is in full bloom again and looks beautiful. It truly is pure white.

      Satisfactory Average performance, met expectations but not outstanding.
    • I have 2 of these plants and they are superb! They offer a nice perky green with spontaneous white stand-out flowers all over adding a nice shady backdrop to this little cozy area I am designing as a respite from the heat of the late afternoon/evening sun where I intend to sit and enjoy some of my time sipping Iced Tea drinks and watching my hummingbirds and butterflies. These look nice near my Little Duckling Clematis trellis and seem to enhance them. I have a little garden spot next to the side of a shed and then the Rose of Sharon bushes. To the left is a Red bud tree, and then a blue ice cypress to form a sort of squarish shady space with the front being open. I am hoping to complete this with some sort of nice picket fencing or so, a swing, and some stepping stones, a gazing ball, and a little attractive fountain for a relaxing area.
