Plant Type: Perennials

Stunning! Tissue-paper like pink blossoms with a deep red eye, opening 6-8 in. in diameter early in the morning. As the morning progresses the blossoms tightly twist to a close. The blooms are short-lived, lasting 1-3 days, but they are replaced by a profusion of new buds. The hardy hibiscus bloom period generally lasts 2-4 weeks.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

'Lady Baltimore' needs rich soils, consistent moisture and full sun. Mulch during winter to protect roots. Best effect when planted in groupings in areas that remain moist such as the banks of a pond or stream, shrub beds or entrance ways for a dramatic effect.
