Hibiscus Syriacus Monstrosus (Rose of Sharon)
Hibiscus Syriacus Monstrosus produces an absolutely stunning flower in pure white, with crumpled-effect petals and a striking maroon splash at its centre.
Monstrosus is a single-flowering Hibiscus whose late flowering large, showy flowers are usually around 10 cm in size and have a dramatically contrasting splash of maroon at the centre. You will be hard-pressed to find a flowering shrub to compete with colour display on this level in the Autumnal garden!
The Hibiscus Syriacus shrub (sometimes called Rose of Sharon) produces showy flowers at just that time of the year when the little signs of autumn begin to appear and the last thing anyone expects is a big showy dramatic display of strikingly beautiful flowers. Perhaps that’s why once discovered, these hardy gems are a favourite among UK Gardeners in the know.
Hibiscus Syriacus Monstrosus will flower from August up until October. The foliage, which does not appears until late spring, is highly decorative with palmate-style leaves that mature to a dark green colour and turn yellow in autumn.
Hibiscus Syriacus are medium sized shrubs and thus also work well in smaller urban gardens, where space can be at a premium. They reach a maximum size of 2 to 3 metres. Like all Hibiscus Syriacus, Monstrosus has a compact growing habit and is generally low maintenance.
Plant your Hibiscus Syriacus Monstrosus in a nice sunny spot and although these plants are not overly fussy, a neutral, well –drained soil suits them best.
Our Hibiscus Syriacus Monstrosus shrubs are relatively mature at circa 70 cm tall and they have a nice bushy shape.
