Hibiscus: Unveiling the Beauty

When it comes to the word “Hibiscus,” it can sometimes cause confusion due to the broad range of species and terminology associated with it. Let’s unravel the mysteries and meet the delightful contestants in the world of Hibiscus.

Herbaceous Perennial Hibiscus

In the heat of summer, we are treated to the stunning giant blooms of herbaceous Hibiscus moscheutos, also known as “Mallow” Hibiscus. These plants are herbaceous perennials that die back to the ground in winter. Don’t be fooled by their temporary absence, as they vigorously grow back and showcase their impressive dinner plate-sized flowers from July to September. These colorful characters can reach heights of 4 to 5 feet, adding a vibrant touch to your garden. Explore our perennial section from July to September to discover a wide variety of these delightful hibiscus plants.

Woody Hibiscus

In July and August, woody Hibiscus takes the stage with abundant blooms on trees and shrubs. The species known as Hibiscus syriacus, also called “Rose of Sharon” or “Althea,” captures attention with its blossoms. While it may start slow in the Michigan spring, it rewards us with beautiful flowering displays in July and August. As a woody landscape plant, it may become “leggy” with age, but fear not! Pruning helps maintain its charm. Explore the diverse selection of Hibiscus syriacus in our Nursery department from April to October.

Tropical Hibiscus

For a touch of tropical allure, we turn to Hibiscus rosa-sinensis. Originating from tropical Asia and China, this variety is not hardy enough to withstand Michigan winters. However, it adds a bold statement to our outdoor spaces during the summer months. With stunning flowers that last only a day or two, Hibiscus rosa-sinensis demands attention on decks, patios, or poolside areas. Keep in mind that it thrives as a houseplant during winter or can be treated as an annual, replacing it each year. Welcome the vibrant Rosa Sinensis, available in our tropicals department from April to June.
