We are only given so many full moons to gaze up and admire each year. Why not bring that same beauty to your garden with a White Chiffon® Rose of Sharon Tree Form (Hibiscus syriacus 'Notwoodtwo' PP12,612)?
The gargantuan pure white flowers of this uniquely shaped shrub will have you stopping short in awe during your early morning stroll through the garden.
To truly enjoy White Chiffon though, you'll simply have to wait for the sun to go down. The fluffy centers catch the moonlight and seem to shine in a glow all their own. Words just don't do it justice!
Of course, if you can manage to tear your gaze from the flowers, you'll notice that the green foliage underneath is quite pleasing as well. Consider it the perfect backdrop for the twinkling petals.
This tree form will start blooming mid-summer and will continue well into the fall. Other gardens might be getting ready to shut down for the winter but not yours!
With the tree form of this deciduous shrub as part of your garden, you'll never be far from a fluttering butterfly or two!
In fact, if you aren't paying close attention, you might think your trees decided to grow different colored flowers! Pollinators will love stopping by to check out the tree almost as often as your neighbors will!
Plus, while this rose of Sharon is a prolific grower, it's incredibly easy to keep pruned to the size you'd like it to be! Let it grow a bit larger, or snip it down to be a small tree.
Tree forms are all the rage and you don't want to be the last one in the neighborhood to have one. Order a White Chiffon Rose of Sharon Tree Form from our expert growers at Nature Hills Nursery today!

#ProPlantTips For Care
Taking care of your White Chiffon Rose of Sharon Tree is pretty easy and quite straightforward. Resistant to many diseases, all you have to do is give this plant a good home and it's good to go.
In this case, a good home means finding a spot in full sun where it can bask in the rays all day long. This is important so that it can show off its brilliant beauty in the light of the moon each night!
For the healthiest plant, make sure that the soil it's in is well-drained. Poor soils, such as extremely wet or extremely dry, aren't too friendly to this tree form.
One of the most important parts of owning a Rose of Sharon Tree form is making sure to properly prune it each year.
Sure, it's not strictly necessary, but pruning can ensure that your White Chiffon Tree Form continues to fit in its designated space and keeps it looking nice and sharp!
Simply wait for early spring, then take your favorite pair of pruning shears and reduce the overall size to a two or three-foot rounded sphere. For older, larger, trees you can cut it back to a three or four-foot rounded sphere to keep a little more height.
If you'd like, feel free to apply a slow-release fertilizer for your tree at that same time. Just follow the application rates on the label directions.
Take special care to give young plants a medium amount of water on a regular schedule. Especially during extended periods of drought each year.
If there were any possible way to make the moonshine a little brighter each night, adding a White Chiffon Rose of Sharon Tree Form to your garden would be it. Order one today!
