Exactly the type of shrub every busy homeowner enjoys. White Rose of Sharon Hibiscus is rugged, handsome and produces heavy blooming without fail even in the snowy north. Better still is the fact that it will adapt to almost every planting soil easily and still pump out snowy white flowers from July into October.

White Rose of Sharon Hibiscus looks tropical in bloom.
You’ll love the surprise of such an easy to care for plant when that twist of paradise bursts forth every summer. The leaves alone on these tall shrubs are lovely; the wide exotic looking blooms are the icing on the cake. Pick a sunny location to get the most blooming and give it drainage when planting in heavy clay for best results.

Plant one or a row of easy keeper beauty.
For summer privacy that doesn’t encroach on today’s small backyards, White Rose of Sharon is an excellent pick. You will never have to worry about battling bugs or disease; there are no known problems that will require chemical treatment. You can leave them unsheared and softly natural or shape them up to suit your desires. If 10 feet is a bit too tall for your space, you can keep it maintained at 7-8 foot tall. It’s best to cut them back in late spring for the most blooms.

Excellent drought tolerance once established.
White Rose of Sharon Hibiscus is known from coast to coast for dealing nicely with dry weather. Their lovely loose shape fits in any landscape design from relaxed to formal, as well as making them an excellent foundation bed plant.

For instant blooming, buy only well rooted White Rose of Sharon Hibiscus.

It's Easy to Plant your White Rose of Sharon Hibiscus

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your White Rose of Sharon Hibiscus.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your White Rose of Sharon Hibiscus gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your White Rose of Sharon Hibiscus again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

I bought 7 plants and 6 have flowered into beautiful plants! I think I may have planted #7 in a spot that's too shady so might not be getting what it needs to thrive - hopefully next year it will catch up. The 6 that are going strong are gorgeous! Tons of blooms, very nice - I have other hibiscus that about quadrupled in size this year so hope that next year these will also take a big size jump. Very happy with my plants

It took a long to bloom - I bought this plant and planted it in the spring, but finally the first bloom opened today - August 2nd - it is really pretty, but much smaller flowers than my other hibiscus. The leaves stay yellowish which look like something is wrong, but maybe that is just the way they are.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
