The Syrian hibiscus is native to Asia and more precisely to Taiwan and China, contrary to what its name suggests.

It is an ornamental shrub that can reach a height of 4 meters. It is possible to reduce it by pruning it.

From June to November, it is covered with a multitude of magnificent mauve flowers with a purple center. The flowers have different sizes between 4 and 12cm in diameter, slightly fragrant. Its light green leaves are deciduous, lanceolate with a toothed edge.

Very easy to grow, the plant likes all types of soil but will offer spectacular flowering in fertile, humus-rich and well-draining soil.

To be grown in a pot or in the ground in the garden, isolated, in beds or in a flowering hedge.
