More about Aphrodite Rose of Sharon...

Noteworthy Characteristics

Aphrodite is the best, strongest growing, pink  variety of Rose of Sharon we've come across. It has performed very well in our trial gardens here in Zone 8a of mid-Georgia. An abundance of large, pink flowers centered with red are produced during the summer. Like crape Myrtles they seem to just keep on blooming and blooming for up to three months. No need to worry about seedlings or sprouts coming up from the roots. We haven't noticed this bothersome trait.

Uses

Rose of Sharon are most useful in the landscape as a single specimen, however, can be planted in straight or curved rows to form a hedge. Rose of Sharon can be "limbed up" to make the perfect tree form specimen.  Rose of Sharon can also be planted in groupings, flowering shrub borders, as an accent tree in home foundations,  butterfly gardens, hummingbird gardens and cottage gardens. 

Cultural Requirements & Care

Rose of Sharon are easy to grow preferring a well-drained moist soil and planty of sunshine. Some shade will be tolerated but flowering won't be as heavy. Mainentance is minimal requiring little or no pruning. Insect and disease problems are little to none. Quite drought tolerant when established.
