Buy Hibiscus syriacus 'Red Heart' tree hollyhock: Outstanding white flowers with red centres

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist but well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: August to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    When grown in a sunny spot, this gorgeous, late summer-flowering shrub will produce an abundance of showy white flowers, each with a conspicuous red eye. Its upright habit and attractive foliage makes it a handsome addition to the border.

  • Garden care: To encourage a bushy habit prune young plants hard in late spring. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant. Once established it requires little if any regular pruning.

I bought a Hibiscus Red Heart plant some time ago, probably now around 8-10 yrs old. Unfortunately due large leylandii hedge the plant has grown outwards at an angle to get more light. Currently, its in full bloom and flowers really well but I was wondering (now that the hedge has been removed) if I could cut it right back after flowering so that hopefully new shoots would emerge which would grow more upright? Your advice would be much appreciated.

This can be risky, but if it looks really lopsided, then you can try removing the older stems, and then cutting the other growth back hard. Keep in mind though that if it does not work, you may have to replace it!
