In this post, I want to share the Pillar Rose of Sharon Shrub in my home landscape. Check out videos and images with my personal review of this plant.
About The Pillar Rose of Sharon
The video below is a quick Q&A submit on my website asking about this shrub. I share my honest opinion on how I grow the shrub and where to find it.
This video is part of my Bren Haas Channel.
I received this plant as a trial in 2018. It was only about 10″ tall when it came in the mail to my home garden in Ohio. Due to the fact that I am a huge hibiscus and rose of Sharon fan, I was so excited to try this new variety. The shrub took off immediately. What I love most about the plant is that it grows quickly and requires little to no maintenance. The first year you need to make sure it is watered well to get established. Like most Rose of Sharon this variety loves full sun so put it in a spot where it can show off in Mid-Summer. Fortunately, I have a purple Pillar Rose of Sharon growing in my garden as well. Here are some key things to keep in mind about the plant:
- 10-16 ft. tall and 2-3 ft. wide at maturity
- Grows best in at least 6 hours of full sun
- USDA hardiness zone 5-10 are recommended
- This variety does not drop seeds
- no pruning or deadheading required
- water well first year to get established
Where to find these shrubs
I have found this plant online at Proven Winners and on Amazon. You can ask your local garden centers about this plant and hopefully, they can get it in for you if you’d rather buy locally. Most Proven Winner plants that are bought online are grown by local growers in your area so you receive the best quality plant.
