Tough, tolerant and easy to grow, this hardy hibiscus is a treat from late summer to mid-autumn, when its branches are laden with large pink flowers. Each of these is made up with a collar of rounded petals that are finely laced with darker pink veining, and at their centre is a cluster of smaller petals that create an attractive ruffled effect. It's a great deciduous shrub that will help prolong the season of interest.
- 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. Once established it requires little if any regular pruning.
Please note the plant is supplied in a black plastic pot,but if you do wish to pot it up for the patio we have a great range on our website.
