Blue Hibiscus (Alyogyne huegelii)
Blue Hibiscus, also commonly called Lilac Hibiscus, is not actually a member of the hibiscus family, though it is an attractive hot weather blooming shrub that adds beautiful accent color into a broad range of landscapes. Alyogyne huegelii are native to Western Australia and we love to plant them in our area where they’re the perfect beautiful evergreen shrub for use in entryways, hedges or borders. It’s easy to see why this is such a popular and breathtaking plant – it can display large blue-purple flowers that captivate the senses!
Blue Hibiscus plants love to grow in a spot where there’s plenty of full sun exposure, such as in a sunny border or garden spot. They have a fast growth rate and require low to moderate watering needs once established, so they are suitable for any drought tolerant landscape. We recommend pruning after the bloom cycle to keep them full and doing this can also promote fast bloom cycles. Don’t forget to feed with our Super Charged Moon Juice for optimum results!
