(aka: Hibiscus PDN 15-01) Hibiscus 'Pink Teacups' is one of those lovely surprises that 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. We've never seen this trait on any hardy hibiscus...truly fascinating.
