Columns of Long-Lasting Purple Blooms 

The Purple Pillar® Rose of Sharon is a magnificent addition to any garden or landscape. Renowned for its striking vertical growth and stunning floral display, this exceptional, space-saving cultivar delivers beauty to outdoor spaces.

Boasting a unique upright stature, the 'Purple Pillar®' stands tall, reaching heights of up to 15 feet while maintaining a slender, columnar form. Its dense foliage of deep green leaves provides a lush backdrop for the star of the show—lavish, purple blossoms. In mid to late summer, clusters of large, vibrant purple flowers adorn the branches, creating a spectacle of color and charm. These blossoms attract pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds, enhancing the biodiversity of your garden.

The 'Purple Pillar®' is also a low-maintenance and adaptable plant. This hardy shrub is disease-resistant, cold-hardy, and drought-tolerant once established, making it a resilient choice for various climates. Plus, you can expect your 'Purple Pillar®' to produce heavy blooms throughout a long blooming period of summer through fall.

Ideal for use as a focal point in landscapes, the 'Purple Pillar®' can also be incorporated into narrow hedges, screens, formal gardens, entryways, and decorative containers. Its vertical growth habit makes it a space-saving option for urban gardens or smaller areas where traditional shrubs may not fit. Add a touch of elegance and a pop of stunning purple to your garden with the Purple Pillar® Rose of Sharon today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting:  Plant your Purple Pillar® in full sun (around 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily), in an area with well-drained soil. Once you've selected your location, dig a hole large enough to accommodate your plant’s root ball.

If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's about twice the width of your plant’s shipped container. Using high quality soil, pot the plant and place it in an area where it will receive plenty of sun.

2. Watering: Plan to water your Purple Pillar® one to two times per week.  If you're not sure when to water, check your plant’s soil about 2 or 3 inches down for dryness.

3. Fertilizing: You can fertilize this plant every spring with a general-purpose fertilizer.

4. Pruning: You only need to prune your Rose of Sharon if you want it to maintain a certain shape for hedges. You can also prune to control the size of your plant as taller plants will have smaller blooms.
