Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus)木槿
It is a very hardy flowering shrub with a long blooming time from July to November. Best in full sun location. Flowers only on new shoots so it is better with heavy pruning in fall. In spring the shrub will promote new shoots when the summer comes those tips of shoots will be full of flowers. Flowers attract bees and butterflies. Easy to grow and easy to propagate. Normally propagate from grafting, also can be from seeds and from green wood cuttings. USDA Zones:5-9. Mature size:10′-12′(H) x 10′-12′(W) but it is easy to prune to smaller size.
木槿是很強健的灌木,這種木本花卉以全日照為佳,花期很長從7月到11月. 花只開在新枝條所以秋末冬初時可以強修剪,這樣春天會多分枝,夏天時那些於春天發的新枝末稍才會花開滿滿! 花為頗吸引蜂蝶的蜜源. 容易栽培和繁殖. 一般以嫁接為主,使成一株有多品種及花色,也可以種子或新枝扦插的方式來繁殖. 耐寒也耐熱. 成熟植株高約10-12呎,寬幅10-12呎.
