The Hibiscus Starbust Chiffon is a popular plant
Hibiscus syriacus Starburst Chiffon, as the botanical name of the Hibiscus Starbust Chiffon is, is a very popular pot plant. Whether on the balcony, the terrace or in the garden, its white flowers and the boldly coloured red heart will enchant everyone who sees it. The flowering season of the beautiful flowers is usually from June to the end of August, sometimes even into September.
The ideal location for the garden marshmallow Starbust Chiffon
The Hibiscus syriacus Starbust Chiffon prefers a sunny to semi-shady location. When planted in the garden, it loves a nutrient-rich, well-drained soil. In the garden, for example on the patio, the hibiscus is an absolute eye-catcher with its unique flowers and rich green colour. The hibiscus is hardy and also very popular as a gift and will delight anyone who receives it.
The hibiscus plant is a haven for insects
With its splendid white flowers and bold red heart, the garden hibiscus on a stem attracts many native insects. Butterflies, bees and bumblebees all love the high nectar content of the flowers. To offer the insects even more variety, the hibiscus should be combined with other insect-friendly plants. These include the summer lilac Buddleja Davidii, the Victoria or Red prince. The Weigelie in particular also feels very much at home in a garden on the terrace or balcony.
The perfect care
The hibiscus is hardy and does not require much care. The zealous leaves of the small plant shine in a rich green tone and ensure that the Hibiscus syriacus Starbust Chiffon is also a beautiful plant to look at outside of the flowering season. Regular pruning in spring will keep the plant flowering and healthy. The garden marshmallow likes to be supplied with a long-lasting fertiliser in spring. As the soil often loses important nutrients when it is planted in cold soil, it is recommended that the plant is transplanted every 1.5-2 years into a slightly larger pot with fresh soil, so that it can develop properly and continue to delight its viewers.
