Hibiscus syriacus 'Hamabo' is a vigorous, medium-sized, vase-shaped, deciduous, flowering shrub of upright habit with narrowly palmate, 3-lobed, toothed, dark green leaves and trumpet-shaped, pale pink flowers with pink-red veins and deep-red blotch in the centre, blooming from mid-summer to early autumn. Flowers bloom just for one day and are attractive to bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Hibiscus syriacus 'Hamabo' thrives in average, organically rich, neutral, medium moisture, well-drained soils, but can adapt to various soil types. It prefers full sun, slightly shaded in the afternoon, but it tolerates partial shade. It can withstand heat and humidity, but needs to be protected from strong winds. Low maintenance, doesn’t require much pruning. Hibiscus syriacus 'Hamabo' is a wonderful flowering shrub with an exotic touch, great for cottage, urban, and coastal gardens. Perfect for flower and shrub borders, wall-side borders, informal hedges, and for growing in containers. Hibiscus flowers are edible and mostly used for making tea.

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).
