Hibiscus Magenta Chiffon & a spun metal planter

    The latest of the new 'Chiffon' hibiscus, this has been bred by Roderick Woods in Norfolk, and it has wonderful reddish pink flowers, each packed with lots of slightly ruffled petals that create a slightly frilly effect. The flowers appear late in the season, which makes this resilient deciduous shrub perfect for continuing the display in the shrub border well into autumn.

    Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, these contemporary metal planters are made from attractive spun steel finished in antique brass with a smooth matt powder coat.

    Lightweight and robust, the pots have gently tapered sides with a rolled lip to eliminate sharp edges and avoid damaging tender plants.

  • Garden care: To encourage a bushy habit prune young plants hard in late spring. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant. Once established it requires little if any regular pruning.
