Hibiscus syriacus, the common garden Hibiscus, also called Rose of Sharon or Rose of Althea is a woody perennial, deciduous, flowering shrub that can reach 2-4 m in height.
The flowers are large, solitary, showy, single or double and appear from mid summer to early autumn on current season's growth. Since plants bloom on new growth, shaping or pruning can be done at any time.
To give the best growing conditions to your Hibiscus plant it in a place with full sun as it likes hot weather. It will also tolerate partial shade. Soils are not critical but it prefers moist, well-drained soils supplemented with organic matter.
