Perennial hibiscus


 

About: Perennial Hibiscus

Zone 4-5 • Mature 4-8' high

Perennial hibiscus is a large group of hardy, vigorous, sometimes shrubby hybrids with glossy, dark green foliage, red stems and large (3-10") brightly-colored flowers that each bloom for one day on a plant with a long succession of up to 250 individual blooms from early summer to autumn or frost. Prefers medium-to-wet conditions in full sun with protection from wind, but will tolerate some light shade. Deadhead spent blooms, cut stems back 3-4" in late autumn and fertlize when new growth appears in spring then regularly through the season.

Plants are deer resistant and attract birds and butterflies.

Some varieties with very large blooms are called rose mallow. Hibiscus syriacus varieties are called rose of Sharon or shrub althea, which are upright, vase-shaped, multi-stemmed shrubs that are larger than rose mallows and have smaller flowers.
