The Rose of Sharon or Althea is an easily grown deciduous shrub that was a common pass along plant. This durable shrub is tolerant of a wide variety of soil types as long as they are well-drained, is moderately drought tolerant once well established (though it will flower more with adequate moisture), and will provide many years of enjoyment with its procession of summer flowers.
Easy Care and Design Tips:
Finding the perfect planting spot where Minerva Hibiscus will give you her best performance is easy as 1-2-3: 1) full sun, 2) well-drained soil and 3) an early-spring application of a slow-release fertilizer. This well-mannered plant is equally at ease as a landscape specimen or container plant. You’ll have to keep container plants watered more often, but the extra effort is worth it if you want to make an impact statement — plant Minerva Hibiscus shrubs in matching urns on either side of your home’s sunny entrance for a glorious show of color all summer!
