More about Peppermint Smoothie Althea...

Noteworthy Characteristics

There’s nothing better than a summertime smoothie and our NEW collection of Smoothie Altheas is no exception! Althea, also known as Rose of Sharon, are way under-used shrubs or small trees that feature gorgeous, peony-like, double-blooms with ice cream colored flowers mid summer into fall. So, right about when crape myrtle finish flowering the Altheas are just getting started! Who can pass that up? Take advantage of this and other late summer flowering shrubs to keep your landscaping colorful in the dog days of July, August & September.

Peppermint Smoothie™ features beautiful, double, bi-colored red and pink peppermint blooms from mid to late summer. Flowers attract butterflies

Uses

Growing 6 to 8 feet in height with a 4-5 foot spread, Peppermint Smoothie™ Althea fits perfectly in smaller gardens and garden spaces. Its attractive and plentiful blooms make it capable of holding its own as a specimen, which can be used as a focal point anywhere in the landscape, to accentuate an entryway, or to frame in a corner of a one-story home or other structure. Althea can also be used in small groupings in larger landscape beds or as espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall). One's ability to shape the plant also makes the shrub a prime candidate for hedges. But since Althea is deciduous, it makes an effective privacy hedge only in summer.

Culture & Care Tips

Althea is highly adaptable, super heat tolerant, and exceptionally easy to grow. It easily adapts to various soil types, pHs, drought, pollution, etc. We suggest growing them in full sun to part shade. They are perfect for hedges, beds, borders and mass plantings. As a heat-lover, this shrub is a treat for southern gardeners who crave plants that can stand up to summer's heat. The plant is quite drought-tolerant when established. In fact, if your Althea has yellow leaves, it could be due to over-watering.

I am really enjoying the quality of my althea. I thought it was in great condition and of wonderful quality when it was shipped to me; it hasn't bloomed yet but it is sporting new growth which looks healthy. Spencer Young, an employee which I spoke with , was kind and helpful. Your site offers a lot of variety. The photos and descriptions are very clear. I enjoy looking at the different plant selections that this company has to offer. Darylle Buckley

The plant was dormant when I received it, but it had been trimmed to a nice shape. It was also a lot bigger than I expected and is already breaking dormancy and the leaves look very healthy. I will keep ordering from them.
