DescriptionYour 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 -20 to -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!
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.
