The latest of the new 'Chiffon' hibiscus, this has been bred by Roderick Woods in Norfolk, and it has wonderful reddish pink flowers, each packed with lots of slightly ruffled petals that create a slightly frilly effect. The flowers appear late in the season, which makes this resilient deciduous shrub perfect for continuing the display in the shrub border 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. 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.
