This tree is a colorful solution to those dull, small spaces that everyone has in their yard.
The Pink Rose of Sharon (or Althea) tree is known for its lengthy blooming season. You will get bright pink, tropical flowers for months. (In fact, the showy flowers are a breathtaking, deep pink.)
You can expect a flurry of large flowers from early summer to early fall… a time when other plants in your garden are going dormant.
This tree is perfect for bird gardens, too, as the blooms will attract both hummingbirds and butterflies!
A low-maintenance plant, the Pink Rose of Sharon tree is pest-resistant and requires minimal watering.
You can expect it to reach heights of 8-12 feet, with a width of 6-10 feet. This tree flourishes in full sun. It thrives in Growing Zones 5-9 and in various soil conditions.
The Pink Althea is a beautiful centerpiece to any garden. It can be used as a privacy hedge or highlighted for its ornamental beauty as an addition to other flowering plants in your garden.
You can even pot it on your patio as a unique and colorful way to add character. Landscapers recommend planting in groups of three for the most dramatic effect.
