Aphrodite Rose of Sharon, also known as Althea, is a deciduous shrub that produces large, showy, bright pink flowers during mid to late summer. The plant has a dense, upright growth habit and is relatively easy to grow, requiring little maintenance. It is a great choice for adding colour and texture to a garden, as well as attracting butterflies and hummingbirds. The plant is tolerant of drought and heat, making it a suitable option for a variety of different landscapes.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Regular watering is important for healthy growth. Water the plant deeply and thoroughly, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings.
  • Maintenance: Remove any dead or damaged branches throughout the growing season. In colder regions, protect the plant from frost by covering it with a blanket or tarp.
  • Pruning: In fall or after the plant has finished blooming, remove any spent flowers or seed pods. Cut back the branches by one-third to one-half to prepare the plant for winter.
  • (Optional):Fertilize from a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring and again in early summer.
