Full Blast™ Rose of Sharon
The Largest Flowers Yet!
Sporting by far the largest flowers we have ever seen on a Rose of Sharon, this multi-stemmed shrub will bowl you over with its beauty. The lavender blooms are simply massive, and arrive in great numbers, standing out brilliantly from the dark green foliage. A showpiece of a shrub, it's waiting for your best sunny garden spot.
Full Blast™ earns its name with super-fast, vigorous growth from the very first season. Eventually reaching 8 to 10 feet tall and wide, it puts on about 3 feet a year if pruned back annually. Deer leave the plant alone, which is one big reason for its success. Another is simply a more robust nature, which rewards you with better branching and more blooms, season after season.
The flowers begin in early summer in most climates, as soon as the hot weather arrives. They continue almost nonstop throughout summer and into fall, and unbelievable show of color. Butterflies cannot resist their allure, adding to the beauty of the garden.
Site Full Blast™ in plenty of sunshine and well-drained, enriched soil, and keep it moist especially the first season or two for best growth. Before you know it you will be showered with lavender color that continues for months! Zones 5-9.
