Lavender Late-Season Blooms

Ardens Rose of Sharon is an ornamental shrub.  Plant a few en masse around your mailbox for a cheery roadside welcome, or perhaps just a couple near your front door to impress guests.  No matter where these lovely shrubs reside, they’re sure to make an impression.

Your Ardens Rose of Sharon is beloved for its 3-inch, double blooms and hardy nature.  Ardens’ vibrant green foliage, with its diamond shape and serrated edges is the perfect backdrop for the gorgeous blossoms that appear mid-summer and last into autumn.  You’ll adore the elegant, lavender shade of the blooms, delightfully ruffled in appearance with a dark maroon splash of color at the center (that seems to beacon you in for a closer look).   

Pollinators will also love your Ardens Rose of Sharon, marking your home as a welcomed stop for hummingbirds, butterflies and bees.  In the autumn, your Ardens’ foliage will take on a slight yellow hue for one last gasp of color before the long winter’s rest.

Ardens Rose of Sharon is a deciduous shrub that grows up to 12 feet in height with an 8 foot spread.  It has an upright, multi-stemmed nature and vase shape.  Ardens is adaptable to a variety of conditions and will even thrive in partial shade.  It’s long-lived and in fact, under ideal conditions it can be expected to live up to 40 years.

Ardens Rose of Sharon is one of those flowering shrubs that adorns the late season landscape when many other shrubs have begun their decline.  Plant one today and you’ll bask in your love of flowers well into autumn!

* Lavender flowers
