Rose of Sharon

Gartenhibiskus kaufen

The elegant calyx of the garden hibiscus (syn. rose mallow) is truly a colourful wonder – these plants inspire us with flowers that range from white to pink to delicate lavender blue. The often full-coloured centre of the calyx, which is star-shaped at the end, contributes to the stunning appearance. If you buy a garden hibiscus here at Lubera, you will get a shrub that attracts everyone's attention in the summer, while other shrubs have already finished their flowering, plus this plant is also quite easy to care for.

For the Central European climate, the numerous varieties of Hibiscus syriacus are the ideal choice because not all species of the mallow family are frost hardy. If you would like to enrich your garden with the beautiful rose mallow, look no further than our Lubera assortment. We have put together attractive winter hardy hibiscus varieties, which shine in different colours and flower shapes, and also attract numerous pollinators.

Garden Hibiscus – Origin and Use

If you buy a garden hibiscus, you will get a funnel-shaped shrub that grows up to three metres high and two metres wide. The shrubs belong to the mallow family. Although it is also called Syrian ketmia, it is native to China and India, where it can be found at sunny forest edges. As a shrub, it grows very slowly and does not start to grow until late spring – hence the late flowering. A garden hibiscus can be used in many ways. It is suitable as a solitary plant and is also an ideal hedge plant.

Planting Hibiscus

The hibiscus is hungry for light and prefers a sunny, warm and preferably sheltered site. The soil should be rich in nutrients and permeable. For a hedge, a minimum distance of approximately 60 centimetres per plant should be maintained. Hibiscus syriacus is sensitive to frost only in the first years and should be planted in the spring so that the plant can grow well until the winter. In its youth, the plant is often not completely frost hardy – a protective mulch layer is therefore very useful in the winter. Should individual shoots freeze back, the hibiscus is quite regenerative. After planting, after about two months, you should apply nutrients in the form of slow release fertiliser or compost. The soil should not dry out completely in the summer – meaning that it should be watered regularly!

Pruning Garden Hibiscus

The hibiscus blooms on the new shoots. For this reason, it is important that the cut is made starting at the end of March, before the new shoots grow. Young plants should be pruned a little more so that the shrub branches better. An older hibiscus bush can also receive a generous rejuvenation cut.

A garden hibiscus can be raised at a height of about 50 centimetres as a standard – however this takes a few years to complete this growth form. To achieve a standard tree, only one strong main shoot should remain and every year the shoots should be removed. Support the main shoot with a long stake. The tip should be cut off when the correct height of growth has been reached. This is how a crown is gradually formed.

Winter Protection for Hibiscus syriacus

Protect the root area of the ​​young plants with a layer of mulch or brushwood or plant suitable ground cover around the hibiscus. If the garden hibiscus is planted in a container, it should be placed in a sheltered spot (house wall) in the winter and the planter should be placed on a wooden base or Styrofoam mat. It is also recommended to protect the container plant with a fleece.
