A Beautiful Blue Bloom for the Hottest Days of Summer
Why Blueberry Smoothie™ Rose of Sharon Althea Trees?
Gorgeous blue-purple blooms, reminiscent of blueberry ice cream, define this eye-catching Rose of Sharon Althea Tree. The deep purple flowers curl at the edges, making an incredible addition to your landscape.
Plus, you get massive double blooms with this tree. These full flowers sit perfectly amongst the bright green leaves.
And the Rose of Sharon pops as everything else begins to fade. In the dog days of late summer, the Blueberry Smoothie™ Tree begins to bloom and delights well into the autumn season.
Even better? You'll just plant it and enjoy it. You don't need to worry about annoying upkeep when it comes to this tree. Simply plant wherever you'd like an additional spark of color...and watch the growth take off without effort.

Customer Reviews & Photos
poor packaging - damaged
After each shipment arrived of our MANY orders I kept getting told well just tell us if it dies we'll replace it. In the meantime I have a horrible beaten up tree or plant because of their packaging. Most of the dirt spilled out of the bags the soil treatment and startup placed losely in the boxes just bounced around during shipment and damaged what was probably decent looking plants. Because of the damage and shock all the plants and trees we received (over $1 000 purchased) most are very slow in growing and don't look much bigger than the day we planted them in the Spring (it is not mid-October). I will never buy from this company again. I have since purchased from 2 fantastic other companies online who know better than to put heavy bags of soil condition in with their boxed plants and trees.. they ship those separately. Their packaging and products were so far above Fast-Growing Trees in quality timely shipments and growth !...
Love love the 2 trees I bought put them in large planters and put flowers at base so beautiful!!!!!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Blueberry Smoothie Tree in either full sun or partial shade. This tree is very resistant to heat, drought, pollution and poor soil conditions, so you only need to worry about where you place the plant in your yard.
Dig a hole large enough to accommodate your Rose of Sharon's root ball, place your tree, and backfill the soil. When planting, add some compost and a general fertilizer to the soil and then top off the base of the tree with some mulch for water retention.
2. Watering: Because of its drought resistance, you only need to water your Blueberry when you get less than one inch of rain in a week. Simply check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down for dryness.
3. Fertilizing: You can fertilize the tree every spring with a general-purpose fertilizer.
4. Pruning: You only need to prune if you want it to maintain a certain shape for hedges. Cutting 2 to 3 buds on each branch will allow the tree to produce larger blooms the next season.
Most items ship the next business day unless otherwise noted

Growing Zone Finder.
Some plants are not available for immediate shipment, and delayed delivery is noted.
