Hibiscus 'Tie Dye' is a perennial mallow release from the breeding program at Walters Gardens. This lovely hibiscus produces 5' tall stalks adorned with large 10" flowers all summer...pink on the outer half of the flower face and white on the inner half...all accented by a central cherry-red eye. Moist soils are best, but Hibiscus 'Tie Dye' will prosper in all but the driest of garden soils.
Hibiscus 'Tie Die' is a very low maintenance perennial, provided they are growing in the proper conditions. When the plants go dormant in winter, the stalks remain upright and sturdy. We prefer to leave them to give birds a place to perch. The structure also helps the garden remain much more interesting in winter than a flat carpet of brown mulch.
Hibiscus sawfly is the #1 pest of most hibiscus, causing skeletonized leaves. These can be treated with a beneficial bacteria product like Dipel, which contains BT bacillus.
Hibiscus like 'Tie Die' grow naturally in standing shallow water, although they are quite drought tolerant for short period. The drier the soil, the more the plants will be stressed, which increases the severity of insect damage.
Perennial hardy hibiscus add an upright garden form to the garden, as well as summer flowering when many spring perennials have finished flowering or gone dormant.Also, there are few plants with such a floral show that tolerates wet soil.
Bees are the primarily pollinators of all of the herbaceous, hardy hibiscus.
