A Summertime Showstopper


The Ardens Double Violet Althea is a perfect and colorful addition to your garden designs.

This showy shrub is must-have for many reasons...
• Simple maintenance
• All summer bloomer
• Wildlife Attractant
• Large showy flowers
• Superior privacy screen
• Cold Hardy

Your neighbors just found a new reason to stop by your yard! The Double Violet Althea (a variety of the well known Rose-Of-Sharon) casts dramatic flourishes of huge purple flowers that sit majestically against a backdrop of lush green foliage. Its mature size of 8 feet or more will make your Althea an eye-catcher in any part of the yard. No more plain privacy walls! This violet beauty will add elegance to all your natural screening designs. Plus, you'll have summer guests like hummingbirds and butterflies that can't resist being in the company of your Althea!

No to Fuss, Yes to Blooms
One of the best traits of the Althea is its low maintenance nature. The deciduous shrub loves full sun and hot weather, although it can tolerate partial shade. The Double Violet handles all types of soils and strong winds, which makes it a perfect blooming plant from the mountains to the sea!

Pests and diseases tend to stay away, but you can always be preventative by having an organic insecticide and fungicide ready in case minor problems arise. Keep the shrub evenly watered and feed with an all-purpose organic fertilizer twice during the growing season. Prune in the early spring to maintain the plant's vase-shaped look. These simple steps ensure your Althea will reward you with a cast of purple blooms throughout the summertime!

Design Decisions
Your biggest problem with the Ardens Double Violet Althea will be deciding where to put it! Besides privacy screens, the Althea sits pretty amid other shrubs or in your favorite flower garden. The plant blooms beautifully with cottage garden favorites like daylilies and lantanas. Better yet, the Althea's lower trunk area is perfect for an under-planting of smaller shrubs, perennials, and spring bulbs like tulips and daffodils. Even the heat of the summer won't keep the Althea's colors away!
