Bring a taste of paradise to your garden this year with this gorgeous pair of giant-flowered Hibiscus ‘Carousel’ (R).
Perfectly suited to the UK climate, these beauties are hardy down to -15C, and then in the spring sport an abundance of massive, exotic blooms up to 18cm across!
The bright, blousy flowers of these giant hibiscus blend perfectly with their striking, purple foliage making an absolute statement in your garden, and perfect whether grown at the back of the border or in a large pot on your patio.
Easy to grow, and needing very little in the way of maintenance, this collection consists of 2 plants, 'Jolly Heart' with large, white flowers and a vivid pink heart, and its partner in crime, 'Pink Passion', decked in magenta-pink flowers with a darker, cerise middle.
Supplied as established plants in 2L pots, and ultimately reaching an approximate height of 1.8m, you'll receive 1 each of Hibiscus 'Pink Passion' and 'Jolly Heart'.
To enure plenty of flower buds, these 'Carousel' (R) Hibiscus appreciate being planted in a sunny position, sheltered from strong winds.
Grow in a sheltered spot in full sun with a humus-rich moist soil, keep well-watered as these plants don't like to dry out.
Happy in a large container as long as you keep it well-watered.
Protect the crown with a dry mulch through the winter months.
Trim any dead or damaged growth each year in mid spring and remove faded flowers. Hibiscus flower on the current season's growth, so pruning encourages them to flower prolifically.
Hibiscus can be bare of leaves right up until May, so don't think that your plant has expired - keep it well watered and it will burst into life when ready!
