Hello, my name is Red Heart Rose of Sharon. Just like my name suggests, I am best known for my shock of vibrant red that sits at the center of my large white flowers. When I am in full bloom, it looks as though I have an abundance of dainty ruby red hearts nestled into my flowers and foliage. I also have a talent for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds into your garden - but don't worry, the deer leave me alone! I am a little bit of a diva and will require high maintenance, care and upkeep. However, when it comes to growing conditions I am very adaptable, highly tolerant to urban pollution, and will thrive in any soil as long as it is kept moist - I've never met a garden I didn't want to grow in!

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water deeply and regularly, especially during the hot summer months. Do not allow the soil to dry out completely, but also avoid overwatering.
  • Maintenance: Pinch back new growth to encourage bushiness and more blooms. Keep an eye out for pests such as aphids or spider mites, and treat as necessary.
  • Pruning: Prune back the plant in late winter or early spring before new growth appears. Remove any dead or diseased branches, as well as any old or woody growth.
  • (Optional): Fertilize in early spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer. You can also fertilize again in mid-summer if desired.
