Eye-Catching Summer Color + Carefree Growth
Why Blushing Bride Rose of Sharon Althea Shrubs?
Named for its soft summer color from large double blooms, the Blushing Bride Rose of Sharon Althea delivers pink blush hues and textural green leaves on upright, slender branches.
You get this vivid color and stunning growth habit, hassle-free. The Blushing Bride Shrub is a showy specimen that thrives in a number of landscape locales, from hedging near your driveway to screening along your neighborhood street. Especially since it handles urban pollution without issue, continuing to bloom like a champ amongst smog and stale air.
And its upright form is perfect for hiding unsightly areas. The Blushing Bride's full growth habit means hiding crawl-space openings, utility areas and beyond with ease. This Althea's double pink pom-pom blossoms are quite different from the tubular blossoms associated with other varieties, so you get one-of-a-kind looks wherever you plant it.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: First, select an area with well-drained soil and full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's twice the width of your plant's root ball and just as deep. Then, place your shrub, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots. Finally, mulch the surrounding soil to conserve moisture.
2. Watering: Water your Althea Shrub once or twice weekly in order to conserve soil moisture. If you're not sure when to water your shrub, check the soil with your index finger, about 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it's time to water.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize before new growth begins in the spring with a well-balanced blend, such as 10-10-10.
4. Pruning: Prune your Rose of Sharon in the winter, after flowering, in order to shape your shrub.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Received it quickly and it was very healthy with a few buds on it. So pretty, can't wait til next spring when it will have many more of those lovely flowers. All my experiences with Fast Growing Trees have been so positive. Thank you!
Much nicer than I anticipated. I live it florida. Do not know if it is too hot for this rose of sharon. So far, so good
The shrub is thriving with branches and buds. Full and healthy plant.
Beautiful tree. It is very healthy. It took being outside on my doorstep very well in 103 degree weather after being delivered and I wasn't home. It recovered quickly and is looking beautiful now. It has added new leaves and is flourishing in our unprecedented heat wave. We water twice a day here in West Texas for all our trees. We are very happy with this purchase.
The shrub came in in good condition I am pleased with the size and condition
