Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant in full sun (around 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily), in an area with well-drained soil. Once you've selected your location, dig a hole large enough to accommodate your tree's root ball.
If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's about twice the width of your tree's shipped container. Use organic soil, place your tree and select a sunny spot.
2. Watering: Generally, you'll want to water your tree about once or twice weekly. If you're not sure when to water, check your tree's soil about 2 or 3 inches down for dryness.
3. Fertilizing: Use a well-balanced fertilizer in the spring to encourage blooming, and follow label instructions.
4. Pruning: In late winter to early spring, prune each new shoot to just a few buds by cutting or pinching off the others. Larger blooms will result.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- Fast Growing Trees
Rose of Sharon
The tree was in excellent condition upon arrival, and well rooted but not root-bound. The client is happy with it. I will almost certainly be buying more from Fast Growing Trees, both for clients and for myself.
Can’t wait until it blooms!
Came right on time and well- packaged. We planted it the same day and it is doing well with regular watering in this heat!
Love these trees!
We planted 4 of these trees in our back yard and although they are still pretty young/small, they still have beautiful blooms on them.
