This selection of Hibiscus paramutabilis comes from a seed collection on China's Mt. Heng at 3,000' elevation. The 10' tall woody hibiscus is clothed with 9" wide, fuzzy, maple-shaped leaves and topped from late August until frost with 4" cupped pink flowers at the end of each branch...a hummingbird favorite. Because of the height, we recommend cutting the plants to the ground each spring to better view the flowers...unless you do your garden viewing from a deer stand.
