Make sure that the root ball of Tricolor Hibiscus is moistened well before planting by placing it in a bucket full of lukewarm water. Prepare a large hole and plant the root ball at the correct depth in the hole, with the upper part of the root ball just slightly below soil level. Fill the hole with soil, press firmly and water immediately after planting. Tricolor Hibiscus grows best in humus-rich, well-drained soil. Improve your garden soil by adding compost and granulated cow manure. Place the Hibiscus in an area with complete sunshine. You can also use Tricolor Hibiscus as a large pot plant.
Tricolor Hibiscus makes an excellent combination plant
Hibiscus syriacus flowers in the late summer from July to October. If you are planting it in the garden it will make a lovely combination with the gigantic, beautiful flowers of Caryopteris Clandonensis and Panicle Hydrangea.
The Tricolor Hibiscus requires minimal maintenance. The plant grows best in humus-rich, well-drained soil. Give it plenty of water during hot periods, especially if the hibiscus is being grown in a flower pot. Remove all dead flowers of the tricolored hibicus in order for the flowers to bloom more abundantly. During the summer, feed with plant food when watering on a regular basis.
Tricolor Hibiscus can be pruned
Pruning is not absolutely necessary for this deciduous shrub. To keep a compact crown the hibiscus crown can be pruned in October. Cut back all faded branches up to 30 cm so that the stem is balanced. Tricolour Hibiscus is perfect for smaller gardens.
This spectacular Hibiscus flowers in three different colours: white, pink and blue. All flowers have a striking pink centre. The Tricolor Hibiscus is the only hardy species and is also known as September Rose.
