Full Product Details

Product Information

Hibiscus syriacus Blue, otherwise known as a 'tree hollyhock', is a versatile shrub that will add an exotic touch to your beds and borders with huge, dramatic flowers in late summer. It will also make a colourful and striking statement in a large container.

A late-flowering shrub, Hibiscus syriacus 'Blue' produces torrents of gorgeous violet-blue flowers from August to October, just when other shrubs are reaching the end of their flowering. The large, trumpet-shaped blooms, measuring 8-10cm across, are beautifully contrasted with darker centres and delicate, creamy-white stamens.

Hibiscus are good producers of nectar so will attract bees and other pollinators to your garden during their flowering season.

Being deciduous and fully hardy, these shrubs will lose their leaves in the autumn through winter, bursting into life again as the leaves appear in late spring.

Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot ready to plant out. Reaching a height of 150200cm and 150180cm spread, plant them in the back of beds and borders where they have room to grow, or in a large container as a specimen plant for your patio or decking.

Care Information

Planting advice for Hibiscus syriacus:

  • Hibiscus grows well in average soil and once established requires very little care, withstanding periods of drought. It also tolerates summer heat and humidity.
  • Grow in a sheltered spot in full sun with a humous-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 and protect the crown with a dry mulch through the winter months.
  • Hibiscus can be bare of leaves right up until May, so don't think your plant has expired 
    keep it well-watered and it will burst into life when ready!

Pruning Advice for Hibiscus syriacus:

  • Hibiscus flower on the current season's growth, so pruning encourages them to flower prolifically.
  • Prune back two or three buds in the late winter months or early spring to encourage larger flowers the following summer. If the shrub is left unpruned, it will continue to produce numerous blooms, but they will often be smaller in diameter.
  • Remove faded flowers after blooming.
