Hibiscus 'Woodbridge' Rose of Sharon / Tree Hollyhock
Common Name: Rose of Sharon / Tree Hollyhock
Botanical Name:Hibiscus 'Woodbridge'
Mature Height: 2-3m
Key Features:UK garden favorite and proven performer; Exotic appeal; Long flowering period; Striking foliage and flowers
This exotic looking hibiscus has good sized rose pink blooms with large, velvety-red splashes at the petal base and a spire of creamy stamens at its heart. The flowers are freely born for some weeks in late summer. The leaves are large, broad and toothy, coloured light green.
This makes an imposing large shrub or small tree given time which relishes a warm, sunny spot, enjoying some moisture. They are very late into leaf each spring, and it is worth waiting for the elusive foliage to unfurl.
