Jimmy's Double Pink Althea, Blushing Bride Rose of Sharon
Gorgeous, double pink, carnation-like flowers are produced in great abundance all summer long on this easily grown deciduous shrub. The Rose of Sharon is quite tolerant of most soils and drought once established. This is a much loved Althea and came to us via John's mother's prized Althea bush when Jimmy, their 4 year old son, picked his mother, Bonnie, a flower and she rooted the cutting some 40 years ago and it still graces her garden to this day.

The Rose of Sharon or Althea is an easily grown deciduous shrub that was a common pass along plant. This durable shrub is tolerant of a wide variety of soil types as long as they are well-drained, is moderately drought tolerant once well established (though it will flower more with adequate moisture), and will provide many years of enjoyment with its procession of summer flowers.

For optimum growth and flowering (like most Hibiscus they flower on new growth) provide average to moderate moisture, not soggy, in full sun with a rich fertile, well-drained soil. For larger flowers, though they may be less in number, a hard late winter or spring pruning will produce vigorous late spring and summer growth with larger showy flowers. Periodic removal of older non productive stems will be can be beneficial to make way for new growth as well.

We now believe that this is the same cultivar as Blushing Bride after much research.
