Hibiscus are one of the UK's favourite shrubs, although many people don't realise they can be grown outdoors, and think the plants aren't hardy. Hibiscus syriacus 'Purple Ruffles' is fully hardy, easy to grow, bushy, free-flowering and excellent for borders and patio containers.
The flowers of Hibiscus 'Purple Ruffles' are extra special; they are purple-red, and with double, even triple layers of petals. Although a little bit late to flower in the summer, they are well worth the wait! Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 2m (6').
Culinary note: The flowers can be infused to make a mildly citrus flavoured tea. The petals can be cut and added to fruit salads too. For more details about edible flowers click here.
