Hibiscus syriacus 'Ardens' is a compact, bushy, dense, upright, deciduous shrub, with unique, ovate, toothed, narrowly lobed leaves. Beautiful, large, funnel-shaped, lilac-purple flowers with dark red throats bloom in summer and early spring. Flowers abundantly but each flower lasts only for one day. Hibiscus syriacus 'Ardens' prefers fertile, organically rich, neutral, moist, well-drained soils in warm, sunny locations. It needs long, hot summers to flower well. Once established, resistant to drought. Very resilient plant, tolerant of heat, humidity, coastal conditions and urban pollution. Very resistant to frost. It has no serious pest or disease problems. Low maintenance plant, requires minimal or no pruning. Hibiscus syriacus 'Ardens' is a beautiful, exotic-looking, flowering shrub, very easy to grow and maintain. Perfect for mixed and shrub borders, wall-side borders, and informal hedges and screens. Excellent for foundation plantings, flower beds, and for growing in containers. Suitable for cottage, coastal, and urban gardens.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
