Hibiscus 'Ardens' Overview

Hibiscus syriacus 'Ardens' is a deciduous shrub cultivar with a compact yet upright growth habit. It produces lobed dark-green foliage and its showy purple-pink flowers with maroon centres mature with blue shades. Commonly known by the names Rose Of Sharon, Shrubby Mallow and Tree Hollyhock this late summer to mid-autumn flowering prefers a warm position. Ideal to grow in wall side borders or urban garden spaces, this low maintenance plant suits informal planting styles. Mulching around the roots in winter will help to provide its preferred soil conditions.
