Hibiscus sino-syriacus 'Lilac Queen'

Hibiscus sino-syriacus 'Lilac Queen'

Deserving of far wider planting, this is closely related to the common hardy Hibiscus but far superior with much larger sage-green foliage, more vigorous growth and, in this form, beautiful lilac flushed flowers with garnet-red bases. These are also larger than H. syriacus, and with thicker petals. Easy in a sunny position in well drained soil.

Hibiscus sinosyriacus 'Ruby Glow'

Hibiscus sinosyriacus 'Ruby Glow'

A very rarely seen relative of the hardy Hibiscus. This species is from China and has much wider sage-green leaves on a more vigorous, spreading bush, with flowers of a more substantial nature. In this form the white petals have a red base. Full sun in any reasonable soil. This is virtually unknown and should, along with the other clones, be more widely planted.
