My rose of Sharon plant is 3 years old. It has thrived here in Central Texas. It's watered once a week and requires very little care other than that.

My sister ordered actual plants back in 2008 from Blue Stone Perennials and I ended up with small plants from the seeds dropping from the parent plant. The actual flower from the seed looks just like the parent plant but when I look here it said the seed will not come true to plant.. Maybe I lucked out but it looks just like it. I provided a photo of mine.. If anyone thinks it's not please let me know. I do trim all the branches down to about 2-3 inches from the ground and then in the spring I thin out the plant when it starts growing in order to keep it a neater look.
