Breck's® Exotic Hibiscus Collection

Breck's® Exotic Hibiscus Collection

Tropical Looks, Cold-Hardy Performance

Tropical Looks, Cold-Hardy Performance Good for the Whole Neighbourhood! Though their blooms look exotic, these hybrid hibiscus (Hibiscus moscheutos) are native U.S. varieties, and good for American wildlife. Both cultivars are bred from North American hibiscus still found in our ecosystem today. Our Exotic Hibiscus Collection carries the attributes of its ancestry, providing food for native hummingbirds and butterflies, with the added benefit of new traits—including gorgeous foliage in contrasting, deep hues. They are also quite adaptable— growing in almost any soil—and naturalize like a dream.

Your Garden, Your Oasis
An island getaway in your own backyard...It seems like a daydream, especially in cold, Northern climates, but our Exotic Hibiscus Collection sets a tropical scene all the way up to zone 4, which gets as cold as -30°F! Set up your garden chairs amid the tranquil hues of a beach sunset—lush, dark foliage in beautiful contrast with vibrant reds and purples. Tropical, saucerlike flowers cover the massive plants from top to bottom—a big improvement on old-fashioned, top-heavy varieties. Your exotic hibiscus will bloom again and again from midsummer to early fall and are very easy to care for—just sit back and relax in your very own garden paradise!

This collection includes one each of the following varieties:
  • Midnight Marvel Hibiscus: Huge, 8–9" flowers of pure red glow against the richest purple foliage in the genus! Deer tend to avoid this beauty, but it is irresistible to hummingbirds. PP24079.
  • Berry Awesome Hibiscus: Deep green, neatly formed foliage is the perfect backdrop to the 7–8", lavender pink, ruffled blooms with red centres. Will bloom again and again during the season.PP27936

Important Shipping Notes:

Breck's times its shipments from Holland so that bulbs and bareroots arrive at the proper planting time (depending on climatic conditions) for each area of North America. To promote optimum stress protection in transit and your success in the garden, bareroot perennials are kept in the ground in our nurseries until fully dormant. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window below.

We will pack and ship your order based on the following schedules. The type of product you order or the weather may affect the anticipated shipping schedule below. Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible in the planting season to allow for the best root development once planted.
