YouGarden Hibiscus Tricolour Standard Tree 1.2-1.4m Tall
No, your eyes are not deceiving you – this amazing hardy Hibiscus standard tree actually does have 3 colours on the same tree, and will stay that way too. Hibiscus are often propagated by grafting, and the clever nurserymen have grafted 3 individual different colours – blue, pink and white – to the top of the standard stem. Usually, they would graft 3 of the same colour, but in an experimental moment, created this delightful result. Quite cleverly, all 3 varieties have been selected carefully so they grow at similar rates, and no one colour will dominate the tree. This is a more reliable method than the sometimes offered 3 colours plaited together. All that your Hibiscus will need from you is an a ual trim to shape, and they will stay in this lovely mix for years. Hibiscus syriacus is totally hardy in the UK, but thrives best in hot, su y spots, and responds particularly well to heavy feeding, especially with a feed rich in trace elements. Flowering in August and September, prepare to amaze your friends and neighbours with this horticultural wonder.
