Hibis­cus tri­onum

NZ Gardener - - IN SEASON -

Per­haps our most ex­otic-look­ing na­tive peren­nial, Hibis­cus tri­onum is sur­pris­ingly rare in the wild these days, con­fined to a few coastal lo­cal­i­ties in the North Is­land. It’s also sur­pris­ingly rare in gar­dens but is easy enough to grow pro­vided you give it good drainage and plenty of sun­shine. Plants are short-lived – of­ten an­nual in habit, but seedlings tend to pop up of­ten enough and fit in well with mixed plant­ing schemes. (Kings Seeds)
