More Details

The Purple Pillar Tree, scientifically known as Hibiscus syriacus, adds a dramatic vertical element to your garden with its towering growth and vibrant purple blooms.

Pruning: Pruning is best done in late winter or early spring before new growth begins. It helps to maintain the columnar shape and encourages more prolific blooming.

Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the early spring to give it a good start for the blooming season.

Winter Protection: This tree is hardy and usually doesn't require special winter care. However, a layer of mulch can help retain moisture and protect the roots in colder climates.


Select a location with well-drained soil and sufficient sunlight. Dig a hole twice the width and equal to the depth of the root ball. Place the tree in the hole, making sure it is at the same depth as it was in the container. Backfill the hole with soil and water thoroughly to eliminate air pockets. Add a 2-3 inch layer of mulch around the base of the tree to help retain moisture and deter weeds. Water regularly, especially during the first season, to establish a strong root system.

The Purple Pillar Tree is fairly easy to care for when it comes to sunlight and water. It enjoys full sun to partial shade and requires moderate watering, particularly during dry spells. Once established, the tree is somewhat drought-tolerant.
