Unique Hibiscus Collection

Tropical hibiscus are impressive plants with their evergreen foliage and trumpet-shaped, brightly colored flowers. A new line of tropical hibiscus will be available in spring that offers unique colors and features.

The Bahama Bay hibiscus collection features 18 varieties of this tropical beauty. The 8-inch-diameter, bi- or tri-colored flowers are more vibrant and floriferous than other tropical hibiscus varieties. Plants in this collection also are more rugged than many other varieties because they grow on their own root systems.

Noteworthy selections include 'Nova' Bahama Bay, with double, red flowers highlighted with white; 'Amazon Queen', with copper-colored flowers with swirling petals that open to reveal a bright red interior; and 'Big Bird', with yellow flowers with curved back petals and maroon throats.

In USDA hardiness zones 9 and 10, these perennial shrubs can grow to 8 feet tall and 4 feet wide in the landscape. In colder areas, grow them outdoors during warm months in containers and bring them indoors in fall whenever temperatures approach freezing.
