Althea shrub Hibiscus 'Tricolor' red-white-blue

Hibiscus syriacus 'Tricolor''
Different colours of flowers for a lively garden or border. The Althea shrub 'Tricolor' (Hibiscus) is a feast for the eyes! Hibiscus is an ornamental shrub that requires little maintenance. Although the shrub is deciduous, it is one of the most striking and longest-flowering garden plants. This Hibiscus flowers abundantly! From July to September the plant shows large colourful flowers in soft red, white and blue.
The benefit of planting shrubs in autumn is that by spring they will be well rooted in the garden and ready to burst into growth. Cut back the crown by up to 10 cm in March. The hibiscus wants a nice spot in the partial shade or full sun. If it is too sunny, however, the flowers will bloom earlier, so look out for that. Give your plant a bit of water once a week.
Now you just have to wait for the sun to shine and then you can enjoy the wonderful floral beauty!

Make sure that the root ball of the Hibiscus syriacus is well soaked in a bucket of lukewarm water prior to planting. Prepare a large planting hole and loosen the soil with a fork. Place the hibiscus at the right depth in the planting hole - the top of the roots should be just below ground level. Refill the hole and press firmly down. Water immediately after planting. Hibiscus syriacus thrives in nutritious soil, improve garden soil with some compost and granulated cow manure. Give these shrubs a spot in full sun. You can also plant the hibiscus in a large pot.

Combining hibiscus with other plants

Hibiscus syriacus flowers a little later in the summer, bringing some fantastic colour to the garden at that time. The large flowers look so amazing when combined with the Bluebeard (Caryopteris clandonensis) and plumed hydrangea ‘Vanille Fraise'


Hibiscus syriacus requires very little maintenance. The shrub likes a reasonably moist, rich soil. Water more often during warm periods, especially if the hibiscus is growing in a pot. Cutting away the faded flowers will encourage even more flowers on your hibiscus. We recommend regularly adding plant food to the irrigation water in the summer.

Pruning hibiscus

Heavy pruning is not required for this deciduous bush. For a compact crown you can prune the garden hibiscus in October. Cut all branches of the faded flowers back about 30 cm to keep in form.


Hibiscus syriacus is the only hardy variety of the Althea shrub - often called Rose of Sharon.
