More about Lucy Althea

Noteworthy Characteristics

Lucy is the best, strongest growing, red variety of Rose of Sharon we've come across. It has performed extremely well in our trial gardens here in Zone 8a of mid-Georgia. An abundance of large red flowers are produced for about 3 months during the summer. If you love red flowers, Lucy Rose of Sharon is sure to please!

Uses

Rose of Sharon are most useful in the landscape as a single focal specimen, however, can be planted in straight or curved rows to form a hedge. They can also be useful in groupings, flowering shrub borders, as a small tree accent in home foundation plantings, butterfly gardens, hummingbird gardens and cottage gardens. Prune off some lower branches and they make a wonderful tree form. 

Culture & Care

Rose of Sharon are easy to grow preferring a well-drained moist soil and plenty of sunshine. Some shade will be tolerated but flowering won't be as heavy. Mainentance is minimal requiring little or no pruning. Drought tolerant after established.
