Growing & Maintenance Tips for Hibiscus syriacus 'Paraplu 'Violet''

Thanks to their naturally graceful habit, Paraplu roses of Sharon don't require much pruning. If you wish to prune them, however, early spring is the best time to do so. Note that rose of Sharon is quite late to leaf out in spring, so be patient with it.

We recommend full sun for Rose of Sharon for the maximum amount of blooming and best color, but it can grow and flower reasonably well in partially shaded spots.
