Helene Rose of Sharon Product Details

Botanical Name: Hibiscus syriacus 'Helene'; Family: Malvaceae (Mallow Family)

Height: 6' - 8'.

Spacing: 5' - 8'.

Depth: Plant firmly at the same depth as plant is set in pot. Water thoroughly.

Spread: 5' - 8'.

Sun/Shade: Full sun.

Color: Pure, glistening white with deep burgundy central flares.

Foliage: Palmately veined, 3-lobed, coarsely toothed along margins. Dark green, heavily textured.

Blooms: July to frost, continuous blooms all Summer into Fall - 4 months plus!

Form: Multi-stemmed woody, vase-shaped shrub.

Flower Form: Large, single open bells.

Soil Requirements: Well drained. Very tolerant of a wide range of soils, especially sandy infertile ones.

Growth Rate: Fast, once established, which takes about 4 - 6 weeks.

Pruning: Prune into desired form between February and mid-July.

Size: 3 - 4 inch flowers.

Comments: Remarkable frost and pollution tolerant. Does best in full sun. Will tolerate light shade, but will not flower as well. An outstanding triploid introduced by the late Dr. Egolf at the National Arboretum. Huge, clear-colored flowers with overlapping petals are produced continually throughout the Summer and Fall with no lapse. The foliage shows none of the yellowing in mid-Summer that is typical of diploid Hibiscus. The lustrous dark-green leaves remain on the plant well into Fall. This variety is also noted for its compact growth habit, ease of culture, and reliability. An all around winner of great beauty. It may be pruned up to make a small tree. Thrives in heat, humidity, drought and poor soils.

Rose of Sharon
Reviewed By: Carolyn Bishop (Twin City, Georgia)
My mother-in-law planted a Rose of Sharon when my husband was a young boy,(he was born in 1930) and the tree is still beautiful. It's full of blooms every summer, all summer long. It's outside the kitchen window and never gets any care. I just enjoy it!!
