Garden marshmallow 'Blue Bird' on stem a dream in blue-violet
The Hibiscus syriacus oiseau bleu, as the botanical name of the garden marshmallow 'Blue Bird' on trunk is, has beautiful blue-violet flowers in its flowering phase. The flowering period lasts from the end of June until autumn and is therefore also a wonderful eye-catcher in late summer. The enchanting cup-shaped flowers have a beautiful play of colours, ranging from light blue to lilac blue, with a bold purple heart in the centre.
A food source for insects
The Hibiscus syriacus oiseau bleu is very popular with our native insects. It is the perfect food source for bees, bumblebees or butterflies. The preferred location also plays a role. The garden marshmallow on a stem likes a sunny to semi-shady location that should be somewhat protected from the wind. Our insects also love this environment, so it is very popular.
Suitable for any garden!
The beautiful looking Hibiscus syriacus oiseau bleu can be planted in any garden. Whether it is a small or large garden, its easy-care nature makes it the perfect companion anywhere. The Blue Bird is a real eye-catcher on a trunk when planted as a specimen or displayed in the garden on a terrace or balcony. Planted in a border, the bowslip flower or the beautiful green bowskin grass are very suitable as underplanting. The soil should be well drained and rich in nutrients.
This should be observed with the Hibiscus syriacus oiseau bleu small plant
Regular pruning in spring helps to keep the hibiscus flowering and healthy. When watering the plants, it is better to water less frequently, but to give them plenty of water, as this encourages the roots to penetrate the deeper layers of the soil. As it often happens with a potted plant that the soil loses important nutrients, it is advisable to repot the hibiscus every 2 years and use fresh soil. Watering during the months of flowering will strengthen the flowers and promote the growth of the hibiscus.
