Add a Tropical Touch to Your Garden with Hardy Hibiscus!
Hibiscus come in many forms. If you have ever taken a Hawaiian vacation you have probably seen them used as hedges. However, if you live here in the greater Vancouver area there are varieties of perennial Hibiscus that are hardy enough to survive our winters.
The Hibiscus syriacus varieties, known as the Hardy Hibiscus or Rose of Sharon, are capable of surviving winters as cold as -20 C (-5 F)! Plant them in full sun to light shade to thrive! Since these are tropical plants, ensure they do not dry out.
You will be rewarded with the most attractive feature of these plants: their prolific blooms. They produce an abundance of flowers from July through September. Every garden should have a Hardy Hibiscus as they make an excellent backdrop to your annual or perennial flower beds.
There are several varieties of Hibiscus, here are a few:
- ‘Blushing Bride’
- ‘Lavender Chiffon’
- ‘Red Heart’
- ‘White Chiffon’
