Rose of Sharon Trees
These gorgeous members of the hibiscus family are not traditional roses. The name comes from a phrase in the Old Testament of the Bible, which has been interpreted as referring to a crocus or lily. No matter what you call it, though, a rose of Sharon shrub smells just as sweet! Our plant specialists create the tree-form by uniting popular rose of Sharon varieties on a single tall, standard trunk. Browse our inventory for rose of Sharon tree selections that allow eye-level inspection of distinctively familiar lavender, blue, pink and two-toned flowers.
How to Use Rose of Sharon Trees in Your Landscape
A rose of Sharon tree requires a sunny spot where it will get at least six hours of direct sunlight every day. If you live in USDA planting zones 5 to 9, you’ve got lots of design options for flowering shrubs in tree form. Choose one rose of Sharon flowering tree as a focal point and underplant it with perennials. These trees also work well in informal mulched groups or as sentries on either side of a doorway or stairs. The upright shape stays slim and narrow, and pruning each spring before blooms appear will keep the spherical canopy in lovely shape.
