Walters Gardens Introduction

Huge 8-9in, mauve lavender blossoms with a deep strawberry red eye have attractively ruffled, overlapping petals.  They are produced on all sides of the dense, bushy, rounded clump of thick, bright green, maple-like leaves. 

This Hibiscus is a very floriferous indeterminate bloomer, so there are buds at many nodes up the stems rather than just at the tips.  The result is a much longer season of bloom and flowers that cover all sides of the plant rather than just the top.  ‘Berrylicious’ makes a fantastic large specimen plant that will steal the show from mid through late summer.

Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Hibiscus love the sun and need moist, well-drained soil. Keeping these plants watered will result in larger flowers and lush foliage. Deadheading will improve the appearance of the plant. It is best to plant Hibiscus in the garden before the heat of the summer arrives, and should be heavily mulched the first winter. In spring, cut back any remaining stems before new growth appears. A strong pair of loppers or a saw will be necessary to cut this plant back.  Be advised that Hibiscus is always one of the last perennials to emerge in spring. Its vigorous growth rate more than makes up for this late start, however. Japanese beetles find these plants especially delicious.
