Poncirus Leaves Poncirus Flower Poncirus Fruits

Poncirus likes a well drained, fertile soil and a place in a sunny position, with shelter from cold, dry winds. You can grow it in a border or against a sunny wall or as a very thick, thorny hedge.

Poncirus is often used as a rootstock for Citrus cultivars because of its vigorous growth and hardiness.

You can propagate this shrub by sowing seeds in containers in a cold frame in autumn or by taking semi-ripe cuttings with bottom heat in summer.

Hibiscus Syriacus

Hibiscus syriacus, the common garden Hibiscus, also called Rose of Sharon or Rose of Althea is a woody perennial, deciduous, flowering shrub that can reach 2-4 m in height. It is widely planted in areas with hot summers for its very attractive white, pink, red, lavender, or purple flowers. The flowers are large, solitary, showy, single or double and appear from mid summer to early autumn on current season's growth. Since plants bloom on new growth, shaping or pruning can be done at any time; prune in late winter or early spring in northern climates. The flowers only open in sunny weather. The flowers are hermaphrodite (have both male and female organs) and are pollinated by insects attracted by flat blossoms and nectar.

Native to India and East Asia, the national flower of Korea, it is the perfect shrub for groupings and mass plantings, to create a screen, or planted as a formal or informal hedge or in a shrub border. Standard forms may be used as small trees planted to the entranceways. It has a medium growth rate, with a narrow vase-shaped to arching growth habit, often becoming arching with age if never pruned.
