Bring a taste of the tropics to your garden with one of the last shrubs to bloom in the late-summer party, but they really are well worth the wait. A profusion of large, hollyhock-like blooms with frilly centres, add a breath-taking flourish from late July to late September. This variety's flowers can appear in white, pink or blue. Heat and drought tolerant, preferring well-drained soil in sun.

Cultural Notes

  • Soil - Fertile, moist and well drained.
  • Position - Sun or partial shade
  • Cutting - No
  • Flowering - August to September
  • Additional Information - Attractive to butterflies. Give a mulch of compost in the spring. Hardy hibiscuses are late to come into leaf and their twiggy, grey stems often stay bare until June. When the leaves do emerge, they're usually pale yellow but soon darken.Feed your shrubs twice a month during active growth to encourage optimum health and development. Water regularly until plant is established. Fully hardy perennial.
