The long awaited improved bicolor Hibiscus is finally here! 

You’ll love its huge 8-10”, bright pink petals with a white bull's eye and cherry red center, but you’ll be even more impressed by its improved habit over ‘Turn of the Century’.  From midsummer into early fall, showy ruffled flowers of thick substance are produced at several nodes up the stems with flowers appearing on all sides of the clump. 

Healthy green, maple-like leaves on branched stems form a sizable clump in the landscape.  ‘Tie Dye’ is suitable for planting en masse in the back of the border or planted singly as a late summer focal point.

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.
