Long-Lasting, Showy Blooms on an Ornamental Shrub

Aphrodite is a variety of the ornamental shrub, Rose of Sharon. It's a highly versatile plant, presenting a spectacular appearance as a single, specimen planting or en masse.

Plant several as a hedge along your house or outbuilding, or group a few at the edge of a perennial bed for a tall, eye-catching splash of color.

Your Aphrodite will not only provide you with gorgeous flowers, but will provide them for a very long time. It profusely blooms from early summer and into fall. The 4-inch, hollyhock-like rosy-pink flowers feature deeper red eyes and a slightly ruffled appearance to the delicate petals.

It's the type of show that will be impossible to miss in your yard. The diamond-shaped, dark-green, toothed foliage completes the picture, a vibrant accompaniment to the brilliant flowers.

The Aphrodite Rose of Sharon is an upright, deciduous shrub. It's a vigorous, erect, multi-stemmed plant.

Aphrodite is also quite versatile, being adaptable to whatever shape and size you wish to impose upon it. However, if you prefer, this plant really requires no pruning at all.

Aphrodite is rather hardy, able to tolerate poor soils and some drought. It's able to handle heat and humidity, and can even survive in some urban conditions. Deer tend to leave it alone, but hummingbirds and butterflies are sure to flock to its dramatic appearance in your yard.

You can't go wrong with an Aphrodite Rose of Sharon for your yard. Plant one today to begin reaping the rewards of this amazing ornamental shrub.

  • Wildlife appeal
