Rose of Sharon Care
Provide full sun. Too little light will cause growth issues.
Rose of Sharon is a heavy feeder! Fertilization is suggested, especially if soil is poor. Our slow release fertilizer is a great option.
Pale green foliage indicates the need for increased nitrogen.
Trim to shape frequently to avoid cutting into thick, woody stems, as doing so will result in a slow recovery.
Allow 8-10 weeks after last trim for flower buds to form, as flowers form on new wood only.
It's best to prune in late fall.
Water regularly after planting prior to establishment. Attempt to keep soil lightly moist, but not wet. It's suggested to place 2"-3" of mulch under this plant to help retain a light degree of ground moisture.
