When planting your Double Pink Rose of Sharon tree be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new plants to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant this shrub, but as long as you avoid extreme temperatures, especially in mild climates, you can plant throughout the year.
The Double Pink Althea tree enjoys part to full sun and is adaptable to just about any soil. Keep the soil moist, but not saturated, especially in summer and in the first few months after planting. If you encounter flower drop or only a small crop of flowers it is more likely to be a lack of water than it is a lack of fertilizer. Applying mulch at 1 to 2 inches deep is recommended for hibiscus syriacus trees. Mulching will cut back on watering needs, prevent weeds, and protect your plant in extreme temperatures. Feed our balanced slow release fertilizer in spring. You don’t need to prune Rose of Sharon trees, but if you need to prune for shape or size control, late winter or early spring is the best time. Prune off dead or broken branches when you notice them.
The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. The Double Pink Rose of Sharon tree is pest and disease resistant.
If you do encounter any issues try the following methods: Treat aphids and whitefly naturally with neem oil or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Fungal infection can be prevented by making sure the planting site has good drainage and by avoiding overhead watering. Fungal infections can be treated with a fungicide. Treating most fungal issues after infection isn’t very effective. However, you can prevent the infection from occurring on new growth or worsening on current growth. If you have had problems in a prior year, treat preventatively in early spring for best results.
