Hibiscus Syriacus Totus Albus (White Flowering Rose of Sharon)
Hibiscus Syriacus (also known as Rose Mallow) are deciduous shrubs that produce very attractive flowers from mid-summer through to autumn. Hibiscus Syriacus Totus Albus (Rose of Sharon All White) produces stunning white flowers that are adored by bees and other pollinators. Although late to appear, the large blossoms with rumpled petals stay on the shrub for several weeks. The broad, lobed leaves turn from glossy green to yellow hues in the autumn. Medium-sized and vigorous, Hibiscus Syriacus Totus Albuscan grow to be 1.5 to 3 metres high and across.
Native to eastern Asia, Hibiscus Rose of Sharon is frost resistant and fully hardy in Britain and Ireland. This repeat bloomer performs best in full sun to partial shade and moist, but well-drained soil. With a rounded, spreading habit and a fast growth rate, this Hibiscus variety is easy to grow and maintain in good shape. Although this shrub does not require routine pruning, it’s advisable to remove any dead or damaged shoots in late winter. Considered of good constitution, Hibiscus Syriacus Totus Albus is relatively pest and disease free.
Versatile and easy to shape and train, Hibiscus Rose of Sharon is ideally suited for mixed shrub borders and hedges. Plant this deciduous shrub alongside flowering perennials or low-growing rose shrubs for an eye-catching blossoming border. With a spectacular display of pure white flowers and a strict, upright habit, this Hibiscus cultivar works well as a specimen plant, too. Able to thrive in containers, this shrub can be planted in a large pot and be used as a front door plant or patio plant.
