Product ref: S4T002

Availability: In stock

Hibiscus syriacus Arden, or Rose of Sharon as it is also known makes a magnificent, hardy, erect 'tree hollyhock' shrub with bright green leaves. It is very easy to grow and low maintenance, requiring absolutely no attention and to top it all, it is one of the most prolific flowering shrubs from mid-late summer into the autumn.

Ardens comes in to its own when many other shrubs are looking tired, so is perfect to continue displays from mid-summer with its large Candy-Floss Pink-Mauve Double flowers.

This deciduous shrub is fully hardy, yet has an exotic feel to it, it will be equally at home in the herbaceous border as it is in a tropical-style garden or large patio planter, it really does.deserve more attention for its abundant flowering in mid summer. In most areas it will commence flowering in July and go right through in to October.

It will thrive in a well drained sunny spot, but is very tolerant of virtually all garden positions except deep shade and waterlogged soils, originating from from east Asia it is absolutely frost hardy as well as being heat tolerant in summer, waiting a couple of weeks after the last Spring frosts have finished before bursting in to leaf each year.

One of the very best Hibiscus shrubs available for your garden

Supplied in approx 2-3 litre containers.
