If you are looking for an easy to grow shrub that brings beautiful blooms to your landscape, then the rose of Sharon is a good choice. This plant is extremely hardy and requires almost no care at all to transform into a full size bush. This purple rose of Sharon variety has unique, double purple blooms that flowers through the summer and into the fall adding color to your landscape during the heat of the summer when most other plants have stopped. This also makes it a great choice if you are looking to attract butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden. The rose of Sharon is a very popular shrub because it is easy to grow, adapts to a wide range of soil, and is stunning to look at. It looks wonderful as a tall stand alone shrub, it can be pruned for a more tree form, or plant multiples for a nice hedge. The rose of Sharon does well in the heat but the well draining soil should be kept moist.

General care for any tree or shrub is easy, but like any living thing will require your attention. Please educate yourself and follow these simple rules.
Very prompt; very responsive. Plants healthy. I would recommend this nursery to others.
I was very happy with my purchase and the video on how to correctly plant my bush was greatly appreciated. Thank you.
After a short delay because of a freeze, my rose was shipped and although it was delayed again during the shipping route, the plant was healthy and started to leaf out within a week! Very impressed with customer service who continually kept me apprised during the unforeseen glitches that mother nature threw our way. Will order from New Blooms again!
