A hardy Hibiscus that has large, flat, 6″ white blossoms that are red in the middle and then have white stamen protruding from it. It blooms from mid-summer through mid-fall. Can grow to be 24″ to 36″ tall and up to 24″ across.
Pronunciation: hi-BIS-kus mos-KEW-tos
Species Meaning: Musk-scented
Late to emerge and most Hibiscus did not show much growth until June. While they are meant to be deer resistant, ours have been nibbling on them. Hopefully once they are larger and more mature they will leave them alone. Needs full sun in average well-drained soil where it can be kept moist until well established. Once established, it is a drought-tolerant shrub. Fertilizing during the growing season is recommended.
