Species Althea produces seed; so modern breeders have been developing seedless and near-seedless cultivars. We sell many seedless Rose of Sharon shrubs that behave very well in landscape settings.
Nature Hills is thrilled to offer high-quality plants from so many top breeding programs at our extensive online storefront. Proven Winners® and other premium plant breeding brands have been very hard at work producing seedless Rose of Sharon shrubs.
Cultivars with frilly double flowers produce less fertile seeds. It's harder to pollinate the stamens and pollen sacs amongst the lavish froth of flower petals.
All the Chiffon® series of Rose of Sharon make a great choice for nearly seedless options. Mix and match your favorites for a soft, romantic backyard backdrop.
Sugar Tip® Rose of Sharon brings a little more drama, but stays sugar sweet. You'll love studying the crimson red streaked centers.
Of course, there are some notable exceptions to the double flower guideline. One of the first seedless Altheas was the celestial single blooms of Blue Azzuri Rose of Sharon.
