Pick-up location

The choice of a planting site for this variety of hibiscus should be approached with all responsibility. The length of its life and the beauty of flowers depend on where the shrub will be planted:

  1. The place for planting seedlings should be protected from wind and drafts.
  2. It is necessary to provide the plant with good lighting.
  3. It is important to analyze the neighborhood with other flowers and trees. The Syrian chiffon rose does not like the close presence of other garden dwellers, the only exceptions are roses of various varieties.
  4. Before planting on the bottom of the pit, be sure to pour a thick drainage layer to prevent the accumulation of a large amount of moisture around the roots.
  5. If the place is chosen correctly, garden hibiscus will serve as an adornment of the infield for up to 15 years.


The flower prefers light, moisture-permeable soil... Before planting, the top layer of garden soil should be mixed with peat and sand, and for better rooting of the seedling, a layer of compost should be placed over the drainage.


The plant should be watered regularly, not allowing the soil to dry out. During dry periods, the ground around the hibiscus must be loosened so that the moisture does not evaporate. If the summer is hot, you will have to water every day.


Flower buds of this hibiscus species form at a temperature of 15-17 ° C. Comfortable temperatures are 25-29 ° C. The main advantage of the Syrian mallow is its resistance to heat and frost.

Reference. When growing hibiscus Syrian Blue Chiffon in greenhouses after the beginning of bud formation, the bush must not be moved or turned.


Garden hibiscus is a branchy shrub and needs a spring shearing. Pruning a plant has a different purpose..

  1. Formative pruning is done to give the flower the desired shape. For even growth of young shoots and creating a lush crown, weak and damaged branches should be removed.
  2. To get a hibiscus tree covered with blue flowers, you need to be patient and annually cut off the side shoots, leaving the main trunk. The crown is shortened in early spring by several buds.
  3. Hygienic pruning is essential for abundant flowering and growth of ketmia. Last year's shoots should be shortened by one third. This procedure increases the number of buds laid.
  4. A rejuvenating haircut helps an overgrown old bush to throw out many young shoots. To do this, the plant should be thinned out by removing old and dead branches, and the rest should be shortened by 2-4 buds.

Pruning the bush stimulates the growth of new greenery and increases the plant's lifespan.


The Blue Chiffon is transplanted, like a garden hibiscus, in early spring, immediately after pruning.

  1. The pit should be spacious so that the roots do not rest against an obstacle, but are freely located in the loose earth.
  2. A thick drainage layer and compost should be poured on the bottom.
  3. It is necessary to place the bush so that the root collar is slightly covered with earth, then cover the roots with soil intended for roses.

All season the flower needs to be watered abundantly and next year it will delight the owners with flowering.

If the transplant is carried out in the fall, then the bush must be protected from frost by mulching and covering the plant.


Blue Chiffon is winter hardy - resistant to frost and winters well in our latitudes. Only young specimens need shelter. Adult plants can withstand short-term temperature drops of up to -20 ° C. If the region has severe and long winters, then the flower should be covered at any age. Some growers grow mallow in large tubs and remove the bushes in cool rooms for the winter.


The easiest way to propagate the Syrian rose Blue Chiffon is by rooting cuttings. They are cut in late spring or summer and immediately planted in pots filled with a mixture of sand and peat. With abundant watering, after a month, the cuttings take root.

Breeding with seeds is more troublesome, since it is necessary to maintain a temperature of 25 ° C to obtain seedlings. The seeds are planted in a container filled with a mixture of peat and sand and covered with glass. Crops must be periodically ventilated and sprayed. After the appearance of 4-5 leaves, the seedlings can be dived into the pots. With this breeding method, flowering occurs in the fifth year.

Diseases and pests

"Blue Chiffon" is resistant to diseases and insect attacks... With prolonged drought and rare watering, a weakening tree can be attacked by aphids, whiteflies or spider mites. To cope with the problem, you need to treat the plant with an insecticide twice with an interval of 7-10 days. To avoid falling buds and leaves, it is necessary to feed the rose with complex mineral fertilizers. In order to scare off aphids, many gardeners plant lavender next to chiffon hibiscus.

Top dressing

For the flowering of this variety of Syrian rose to be long and abundant, the plant needs to be fed every 2-3 weeks. Representatives of the chiffon series prefer phosphorus fertilizers. In order for the pet to survive the winter better, potash fertilizers should be applied at the end of autumn.

The most common potassium-containing top dressing is ash.
