Key Features

  • Non-invasive. This rose of sharon is sterile so it will not spread by seed like many other varieties of althea. 
  • Bold color. The brilliant red-pink flowers of this pretty dwarf tree are showy. They bring a lot of color to your yard.
  • Low maintenance. Once established this tree requires only minimal care. A little pruning here and there to keep the canopy looking nice is all this tree really needs.  
  • Dwarf flowering tree. This fabulous small tree fits in just about any landscape and can even be grown in pots.

How to Care

This tree enjoys full sun, but will tolerate some shade. It is very adaptable to different climates and conditions.

After planting your new Red Lucy Althea tree, water it thoroughly about twice per week for the first 2 to 3 months. A 1 to 2 inch layer of mulch can be put around freshly planted trees to keep the soil moist longer and keep weeds away.

Apply our slow release fertilizer in spring to give this small ornamental tree a boost. 

Any necessary pruning should be performed in late winter or early spring. Remove any dead, diseased, or crossed branches when you notice them (anytime of the year).
