This strikingly beautiful garden hibiscus will ennoble your garden with its bold blue-purple flowers, which will enchant the hearts of those who see it.
Growth and appearance of the garden hibiscus
The garden hibiscus (lat. Hibiscus syriacus), also known as the bush hibiscus, belongs to the mallow family. It has a maximum height of about 150-200 cm and grows an average of 15-30 cm per year, while it can reach a maximum width of 100-200 cm. As a small shrub it grows upright with a bushy profile, although it is very tolerant of pruning and can be trimmed if necessary. The summer-green foliage of the garden marshmallow is three-lobed, palmate and coarsely toothed and has a crisp, medium to dark green colour. The cup-shaped or plate-shaped flowers that it produces between July and September are enchanting with their bright, beautiful blue, which will make your garden a real eye-catcher.
Advocations of the blue bush marshmallow
The garden marshmallow is one of those garden plants that do not make any special demands. All that is required for planting this plant is a normal, nutrient-rich garden soil in a sunny to semi-shady corner of your garden. Ideal growing conditions are found when the soil is alkaline to slightly acidic. The shrubby marshmallow is not sensitive to frost. The hardy garden marshmallow can be planted all year round, although it should be planted in groups. As a rule, one to three plants per metre should be planted in the ground in order to achieve a harmonious, covering flower pattern.
Types of use of garden hibiscus within a garden style or hibiscus hedge
Due to its colourfulness and its high popularity with insects such as bees, bumblebees or butterflies, the blue shrub hibiscus can be used for a number of garden styles. Whether in a natural garden, a family garden, a slope garden or a mini garden - its blue, unobtrusive blaze of colour suits any garden style. In addition to being planted as a pot or container plant and within the flower bed, this flower is also suitable as a hibiscus hedge due to its shrubby growth. If you want to give your garden a special touch and go for eye-catching instead of the usual, evergreen hedge plant, a hibiscus hedge is exactly the right choice. As a hibiscus hedge, the hibiscus plant grows opaque and forms a beautiful flowering picture at flowering time, which by far trumps the classic garden hedge in terms of eye-catchingness and beauty.
