Hibiscus mutabilis

Hibiscus mutabilis Rubrum

NOT A TROPICAL HIBISCUS and one of my favorite July to Fall  blooming “Flower Floozie” shrubs! Selected and cutting grown from our prettiest mother plant, this Chinese species enlivens the later season garden with extra large, 6”, cherry-centered, single pink flowers perfectly pre­sented against a backdrop of large, lush, soft emerald green, poplar-shaped leaves. A spec­tacular bloomer and nicely branching to 6’x5’ (easily pruned shorter). Best in rich, loamy soil. More beautiful every year.  Deciduous.
