Soft, billowy blooms, the White Chiffon® Rose of Sharon Shrub (Hibiscus syriacus 'Notwoodtwo') is a lovely modern variety of the native Rose Mallow and Hardy Hibiscus family, and are also known as Althea. Soft, pure white blooms are Hibiscus-shaped and decorated with a lacy center. Live large with these softly tropical blooms from mid-summer through fall.

Give thanks to the gossamer, Anemone-like centers. The lovely lacy center of the blooms does more than create a billowy look. They'll shine in the moonlight, and keep you cool in the height of summer. The color is a wonderful white that doesn't turn yellow. Their relaxing, romantic effect is only heightened by the healthy, dark green foliage. It makes a perfect foil for the lush, large blooms with their wide petals and sophisticated color.

Rely on the carefree Rose of Sharon shrub for luxurious white blooms that just keep coming. It's a perfect plant to add flower power, just as most other flowering shrubs are finishing up for the season. It actually hinders seed production, making this plant nearly sterile. Use White Chiffon® anywhere in your yard without worrying about nuisance seedlings.

Hummingbirds, bees and butterflies will arrive to sip the much-needed nectar and collect pollen! White Chiffon® Rose of Sharon was field-tested for many years by the Proven Winners® team for high performance. Now is your chance to order commercial-grade quality plants that have been expertly grown by the Nature Hills team.

Planting and Application:

Partner these useful shrubs with hotly colored perennials to amplify the impact. Or add them as a serene backdrop to cool-toned blue and violet blooms. A single one becomes a magnificent specimen plant. Several planted together look amazing at the back of the border or along your fence line. Add White Chiffon® on the sunny side of evergreens to soften their look. Or, count on their densely held branches to give you privacy, even during the winter months.

Lavish flowering hedges will pump up your privacy, and create "living walls" of a garden room. A single one becomes a magnificent accent plant. Several planted together look amazing at the back of the border or along your fence line. This variety could be the perfect choice to us as screening all along the outside of your pool deck fencing. Place four feet apart on center, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.

For the fastest results, order the largest size container we have in stock. You can also plant a staggered, zigzagging double row that will fill in very quickly. Use several of them to create walls of a secluded seating area in a little-used side yard. Add a row to cover an ugly garage wall or hide an air conditioner. Use "plant superpower" to turn your eyesores into assets. You'll love your private new getaway.

This shrub works well with many architectural styles. It lends an easy-breezy, Shabby Chic visual appeal to your landscape. Make your space work for you! This shrub is poised, pretty, and fun. White Chiffon® draws your eye. Leverage that by placing two, flanking either side of your garden gate. You and your guests will enjoy that heightened sense of anticipation on entry into the garden.

No yard? Grow them as "Thrillers" in large outdoor containers. Finally gain privacy on your balcony with a hard-working, lovely, flowering backdrop.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

This tall, narrow variety performs well in almost any soil, except if it's too dry or too wet. This easy-care plant is a perfect choice, whether you are a beginner or have years of landscaping experience. Rose of Sharon loves sunshine! Plant it in a spot where they will get at least six hours of sunlight a day. Provide a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. Use a three-inch layer of arborist mulch over the top of the root system to keep them nice and cool.

This pretty shrub blooms on new wood. Prune Althea in early spring to either shape or control the height. You'll have flowers later that season, no matter how tightly you trim them in spring. You can even train these shrubs into multi or single-stemmed tree-forms! Renewal prune every 3-5 years to maintain vigor. Apply a slow-release fertilizer designed for flowering plants at the same time. Follow application rates on the label.

Tree Form vs. Shrub Form

The details make all the difference in a garden. At Naturehills.com, we understand that little things like what form a plant is can greatly impact how you plan your landscape. So before you buy, don’t forget to check which form you’re getting.

Tree Form: 

These are plants that have one stem coming from the ground. Plants can also be considered single stem when lower branches are removed to raise the height of the branching to a more desired height. Sometimes, you will hear a tree form referred to as a single stem.

Shrub Form:

These are bushy plants with many stems and branchings close to the ground. They are referred to as shrubs or bushes and are often shorter than their tree forms.
