Hibiscus tiliaceus

 

Sea Hibiscus

A genus of hardy and tender annuals, evergreen and deciduous shrubs or small trees. The tender, evergreen species such as H. rosa-sinensis, are popular conservatory or house plants in temperate climates. These plants require winter protection in these cooler regions and can be grown as pot plants. The hardy species such as H. syriacus are suitable for annual or mixed borders. 'Tiliaceus' is a fast growing ornamental evergreen tree. It has dark green heart shaped leaves and the flowers are bright yellow with a deep red center upon opening. Over the course of the day, the flowers deepen to orange and finally red before they fall.

Flowering Season

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

This Hibiscus grows naturally around swamps and along coastal fringes. In this environment, this plant will flower all through the year.

 

Planting Outdoors Spring

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

If pot grown specimens can be sought from specialist growers, they should be brought on on greenhouses in the UK. However, they are fast growing and will eventually outgrow even the largest domestic greenhouse or conservatory.
