We were so excited to find this tree. We were specifically looking for a Rose of Sharon tree (rather than shrub) with red flowers as a memorial to a loved one. It replaced one that we had bought locally that was unfortunately dead. Even better, it replaced it at about 1/2 of what we had paid for the original tree. The only issue we have is the flowers - we had expected them to be single, flatter flowers like other Rose of Sharon items, but this is more of a double bloom with a ragged edge. I didn't notice that in the picture. Regardless, the tree arrived in good condition and is healthy and blooming 5 days after we planted it. Overall we are very pleased with this purchase and will return to this company for future needs.

Came broken in half, but was pretty sorry looking anyway. Thin and no buds or flowers.

The plant looked healthy when it arrived. I have to wait and see if the tree would continue to thrive in my garden. I bought two Sharon Althea trees from Brighter Bloom two months ago and one was dead. It never sprouted despite it has been watered properly and planted under full sun.

Quick shipping ..Nice tall tree can't yet see the flowers but it looks healthy

Since the customer is buying a 6-8 foot tree, the picture makes one think they will receive a fuller tree than what arrives. In reality transporting and transplant of one pictured probably would be a bit trickier.

Rose of Sharon is in terrific shape, about 4 feet tall, with good root system; it's very healthy-looking.
