Low maintenance and hardy with striking purple-mauve flowers, this low form of Native Hibiscus is perfect for smaller gardens. Growing up to 50cm high and spreading to a metre, it’s best planted in the ground in rockeries or as a feature plant, but also works well in large pots on sunny balconies and courtyards providing it’s kept moist yet well drained. Blooming from spring right through to autumn, the hibiscus like flowers can be short lived but will re-bloom regularly in warmer climates. Try a weak liquid fertiliser to encourage longer flowering and prune lightly after a flush of flowers.
