From Illinois hibiscus breeder Bill Morrison comes an unusual Hibiscus moscheutos hybrid. The compact 3' tall plants are covered with flowers from midsummer through fall...a hummingbird hub. The 10" wide white flowers are highlighted by a bright red central blotch and the unopened buds are flushed with swirls of pink on the outside tips...reminds me of staring face-to-face at a one-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people eater...your age is showing if you remember back that far. As with all hardy hibiscus, they prefer moist soils but are amazingly drought-tolerant once established.
