Rose of Sharon
Althea syriacus

Rose of Sharon is a flowering deciduous shrub that grows to about 10-12 feet tall and 6-10 feet wide. Give it plenty of room in your landscape to allow it to grow to its natural size. It is hardy to about 10 degrees F and prefers full sun. Flowers can be either purple, white or pink and blooms from June to October. Each flower has a prominent and showy center staminal column. Palmately-veined, coarsely-toothed, three-lobed, medium green leaves (to 4” long) are attractive during the growing season but produce no fall color.
This is an excellent flowering shrub that may be massed, planted in groups or used as a specimen. It can also can be effective as a hedge or screen.
