My plant arrived May 2020, and I could not be more pleased. It arrived about 8 inches tall, but now (October 2020), it is over 3 feet tall with numerous pure white flowers. I am very proud of this plant, and it is in a special place in the garden. I also have a Purple Pillar Hibiscus located at the other end of the garden. This is its 2nd year, and it is now over 6 feet tall. These two “Pillar” hibiscuses provide gorgeous height along with a magnolia. The White Pillar is extremely easy to care for, just use a palm-and-hibiscus fertilizer once a month in the crucial first year. Thank you Romence! I love this plant.
Hibiscus White Pillar®
- Tall, narrow form fits well into tight spaces
- Ruffly, white flowers appear throughout summer & beyond
- Sterile flowers produce no seeds
Proven Winners gives us this columnar variety with semi-double, 3 1/2 - 4" white flowers that are borne along the stems of the plant. It is an easy plant to grow and to fit into the landscape because of its compact upright habit. Perfect for narrow areas or screening, such as along the side of a building, property line, around a patio or compost bin, on both sides of a garage or entryway, or back of a border--even as a focal point in a large container--just accessorize with colorful perennials. Blooms well even as a young plant. Also known as Hibiscus syriacus 'Gandini van Aart'.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Blooming is best with at least six hours of sun, but tolerates some shade. Grow in any moist but well-drained soil; somewhat drought tolerant once established. Apply 2-3" of bark mulch. In spring, when growth resumes, apply an all-purpose granular fertilizer; pruning, if desired, can also be done at that time, as these bloom on new wood. Hibiscus leafs out late, so be patient!
