Also known as the tree Hollyhock or the Rose Mallow, Hibiscus syriacus 'Hamabo' is covered in large, bright pink blooms from July - not stopping until all buds have opened, sometimes right into autumn.
'Hamabo' is a medium-sized, award-winning deciduous shrub with strongly lobed, dark green leaves and blush-pink flowers up to 12cm (5in) in width, each with a bright red blotch at the base of every petal. The flowers shimmer faintly with iridescence in the sun, making this a garden plant that everyone will comment on.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Despite its exotic looks, Hamabo is very tough, winter hardy and easy to care for, and is best placed in a prominent position, where it will bring a colourful display when other plants are beginning to look tired.
Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot, 'Hamabo' stays compact, reaching an approximate height of 1m x 1m after 10 years. Note - supplied dormant with no leaves Oct-April.
