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.

    Perfect little trees

    I ordered two of the 5-6’ tall trees and they are perfect! Height was accurate and they look very healthy (even after shipping.) They both arrived with buds and one even has blooms! Shipping was fast as well. Will definitely purchase from this company again. Thank you for the great service!

    Still Growing!

    This tree is surviving record heat and drought slightly NE of San Antonio, TX. I am impressed. The double blooms are gorgeous and the spent blooms turn a contrasting mauve-ish purple. I can't wait to see how it looks once we get out of this record long 100+ degree heat!

    Red Rose of Sharon Althea Tree Purchase

    Couldn't believe what great shape the tree was in after traveling across county to the Intermountain West! We opened the box and it looked great- no drooping. We planted the tree the same day and it transitioned and is growing well! Thank you!
