This is a selection of the true Hibiscus paramutabilis that we made from wild collected seed from 3,000' elevation on China's Mt. Heng. This woody hibiscus (a deciduous perennial with mid-single digits F) makes a 10' tall shrub adorned with very fuzzy, medium green, maple-shaped leaves, topped from late summer through fall with 4" cup-shaped flowers of pure white with a bright cranberry-red central blotch...attractive to hummingbirds. We recommend cutting the plant to the ground each spring so someone other than airplane pilots can see the flowers.
