#ProPlantTips for Care
Blue Chiffon Rose of Sharon Tree Form performs best in full sun. You'll enjoy the richest, true blue tones; plentiful flowers and healthy foliage if you plant them where they receive at least six hours of direct sunlight a day.
Their planting site should be in well-drained soil that sheds water quickly after a rain shower or watering. Ideally, you would keep the soil evenly moist, but you wouldn't see puddles that remained for very long.
Luckily, these plants are vigorous and durable. Simply 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. Look into automated drip irrigation. It's fairly easy and fun to set up and adjust; and will save you so much time in the long run!
Prune to shape in early spring as needed. At that time, you'll decide on a plan to maintain and reduce their size to keep them as a small tree form.
We recommend that you study your tree all season long. You can use bits of ribbon or twine to mark the branches to prune when it's time.
Using sharp pruners sharp, make cuts to open up the canopy of your tree to sunlight and air circulation.
With those shears, reduce the overall size of the canopy to a two to three foot sphere. For larger trees, you might only reduce to a three to four foot sphere to preserve some height. Once new growth starts in the spring though, put the shears away so as not to damage any of the newly forming flowers.
Apply a slow-release fertilizer for your tree at that same time. Just follow the application rates on the label directions.
Enjoy a very modern accent in your landscape. They require very little, but really give you something special to look at.
Add the cool, lavish blue blooms of Blue Chiffon® Rose of Sharon Tree Form to your landscape this season.
They'll make a great gift for your favorite certain someone. Or gift yourself, and let these hard-working, expertly grown Tree Form plants tie your entire garden design together.
