Hibiscus- Rose Mallow

Deciduous shrubs with very striking flowers.

Situation:

Decorative shrubs for sheltered, sunny situations. Full flowering is achieved only after a warm summer, but at that time the shrubs are particularly beautiful. In spring they start into growth so late that they are often thought to have died.

Soil:

Preferably loamy, rich soil. Propagation From cuttings taken in summer.

Hibiscus syriacus: Height 2-3 m; flowering season late summer to mid autumn with large saucer-shaped or funnel-shaped flowers with conspicuous stamens. There are single as well as double-flowered forms. ‘Admiral Dewey’, single, white; ‘Coelestis’, single, violet blue; ‘Oiseau Bleu’, single, deep blue; ‘Puniceus Plenus’, semi-double, red; ‘Red Heart’, white with red blotches; ‘Woodbridge’, single, red.
