This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist but well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: August to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    You can add a tropical feel to your borders with this hardy hibiscus, because it will produce its exquisite blooms over several months from late summer. A deciduous shrub with a relatively upright habit, it can be used to create an informal screen, or use it in a mixed border to help prolong the season of interest well into autumn.

  • Garden care: To encourage a bushy habit prune young plants hard in late spring. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant. Little or no pruning is needed when established except to remove dead or diseased branches in late winter or early spring. In colder areas, shrubs might need a winter mulch.
