No, your eyes are not deceiving you - this amazing hardy Hibiscus standard tree actually does have 3 colours on the same tree, and will stay that way too.
Hibiscus are often propagated by grafting, and the clever nurserymen have grafted 3 individual different colours - blue, pink and white - to the top of the standard stem. Usually they would graft 3 of the same colour, but in an experimental moment, created this delightful result.
Quite cleverly, all 3 varieties have been selected carefully so they grow at similar rates, and no one colour will dominate the tree. This is a more reliable method than the sometimes offered 3 colours plaited together.
All that your Hibiscus will need from you is an annual trim to shape, and they will stay in this lovely mix for years.
Hibiscus syriacus is totally hardy in the UK, but thrives best in hot, sunny spots, and responds particularly well to heavy feeding, especially with a feed rich in trace elements.
Flowering in August and September, prepare to amaze your friends and neighbours with this horticultural wonder!

My plant arrived very quickly and has pride of place on my patio. I would love to purchase about 20 cancan pansies but seem to miss the offers or there are too many plants in the deal please help.

This was my first order and ordering was easy on the website. I placed my order on a Sunday and received an e-mail on the Friday to say that my order had been despatched and that delivery could be expected on Tuesday. As it was really hot over the weekend I was worried about what the conditions of the plants would be in. The delivery was left with a neighbour on the Tuesday and when I unpacked them I was pleasantly surprised to find them in good condition and the soil still moist. The information leaflet enclosed is great, as a potterer rather than a gardener I found this very useful.
This arrived with plenty of buds on. I wasn't able to repot it for a few days, but it is thriving and already flowering less than week after repotting.
