Plant details

Sometimes called shrubby mallows, varieties of Hibiscus syriacus provide a stunning display of colour late in the season. 'Red Heart' is very popular variety which has white flowers with dark red centres and is a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit winner. As with all varieties, buy larger plants because they need a few years to settle down to regular profuse flowering.
