#ProPlantTips for Care:

Give Blushing Bride Rose of Sharon Tree Form full sun for the best performance. Gain the most plentiful flowers and greenest foliage with at least six hours of direct sunlight a day. Plant in well-drained soil. If your site has soil that retains water for a long time after a rain shower or watering, create a raised bed or install a planting mound to improve your drainage. Give young plants a medium amount of water on a regular schedule. Water during extended periods of drought each year. Container-grown plants need careful watering and a three-inch layer of arborist mulch. Save time with automated drip irrigation. This intermediate to beginner-level project helps keep the soil evenly moist in the long run.

At that time, you can also apply a slow-release fertilizer before new growth appears. Use a formula designed for flowering plants. Just follow the application rates on the label directions. Watch out to ensure no lawn fertilizer formula gets too close to your plant. These nitrogen-rich formulas can limit the number of blooms. On the good side, the foliage will look amazing, however!

Growing shrubs on a standard has become so popular because the plant stays smaller. In early spring, you'll prune to shape your Blushing Bride to keep it shaped up. Study your tree to come up with a pruning plan to maintain them as a small tree form. Renewal prune every 3-5 years to maintain vigor. Open up the canopy of your tree to sunlight and air circulation with a series of 45-degree angle pruning cuts. Keep your pruners sharp, and prune just above an outward-facing bud.

  • Grows in Well-Drained Poor Soil
  • Durable Selection Tolerates Tough Conditions
  • Prune Early Spring
