(aka: Hibiscus PDN 15-01) Hibiscus 'Pink Teacups' is one of those lovely surprises, which becomes a game-changing perennial. In 2014, we visited plantsman Rick Lewandowski at Shangri La Botanical Gardens in Southeast Texas. Rick was kind enough to share seed from a patch of dormant hibiscus, whose foliage appeared to be a hybrid swarm of Hibiscus coccineus and Hibiscus militaris. The gem of the resultant seed crop was an 8' tall specimen with see-through branches, clothed with small 3-5 lobed cannabis-like foliage, and topped all summer with 3.5" bright pink flowers that face completely upright...not sideways or angled, but upright...something we've never seen on any hardy hibiscus...truly fascinating.
