White Rose of Sharon – 6″ Starter Plant



Many Rose of Sharon (althea) varieties with white flowers are technically bicolored: Most of the petal is white, but the part near the center that forms the throat is a darker color.

In the case of ‘Red Heart,’ the flower petals are white and the throat is red.  ‘Red Heart’ blooms from July into fall, with each blossom lasting just a single day. Like all rose of Sharon shrubs, deer usually avoid it. White Rose of Sharon are less common than the magenta varieties.
