Why Pink Rose of Sharon Althea Trees?
Famous for its long blooming season, the Pink Rose of Sharon Althea Tree. You will get bright pink, tropical flowers for months. In fact, the showy flowers are breathtakingly deep pink. You can expect a flurry of large flowers from early summer to early fall...a time when other plants in your garden are going dormant.
And it attracts both hummingbirds and butterflies. A low-maintenance tree, the Pink Rose of Sharon tree is pest resistant and requires minimal watering. You can even pot it on your patio as a unique and colorful way to add character. Landscapers recommend planting in groups of three for the most dramatic effect.

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 Tree 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.
