Plant details

An Australian member of the Hibiscus family (formerly called Hibiscus huegelii, which, like many of its glorious relatives, has large and exotic silky flowers 13-15cm (5-6in) across or more. Even out of bloom, the branching shrubs are appealing plants, covered in short orange-brown hairs and with broad 5-lobed, deeply divided leaves. The flower colour is variable, usually lilac but sometimes pink, red or deep reddish mauve, with darker spots at the base of the petals. The best forms of this tender perennial - an ideal 'dot' plant or specimen in a pot - can be kept from year to year.
