I am waiting for my blooms to start on this. It is currently over 5 feet tall. I try to cut the green parts off if I see any. the flower color is the single purple w maroon eye. The wind is not helping me at all while I was taking the picture..

Gorgeous! Mine is a single white, I think it's 'Diane'. Certainly not as showy as yours!

That's really pretty Nadine. I think they are really easy to root. I just stick the cut end in a little rooting powder & stick them in a pot of dirt. They root in no time. Thanks for sharing this with us. Thought I had one but it was Snow Queen hibiscus. The leaves sure look alike & I got mine at a flea market with no name tag. I'll keep looking for one like yours as I like it a lot.

Hugs,

Moodene,

On your Variegated Rose of Sharon do any of the new branches start consistently producing solid green or solid white leaves? If such branches do appear do you have to prune them?

My variegated RoS seems to be very different. I do grow it in shade and have had no green develop. The variegation has held for the 3 years I have grown it...It is extremely bushy and the blooms are a soft yellowish white with a dark eye...seeds do not develop easily on it and have gotten less than 6...seeds not pods...cuttings also seem to take longer than with other RoS...does anyone else have experience with this one?...I believe the name is 'Miss Jilene'...

I never saw variegated ROS sold like this before, where did you buy it? That stinks it doesnt produce much seed. I keep trying to find variegated seedlings each year found one but it died 2 months later and was very slow to grow. I'm still hopeful I'll get one to grow and keep.

I'm sorry, Keith that you have had poor luck with the variegated RoS...

I got mine from the developer and purchased 100 of them for my nursery stock. I have to confess that I am not fond of Ros...most of them are weedy here in central Texas, but the variety I purchased has proven to be an asset in the garden...good shape, unique bloom, etc...and the insects seem to ignore it.

My grandmother believed that when a plant did not produce abundant seed, it was an indicator that Mother Nature would replicate it other ways...it doesn't disappoint me. I suspect the 6 seeds (planted now) would not come true to the mother plant...

I spray hot pepper on my seed beds and seedlings because critters like to dig up my soil and eat the seeds, hopefully yours will be left alone to grow they are special!
