Hibiscus 'Party Favor'
Deer Resistant IconHummingbird Icon

Plant Type: Perennials

This super long blooming Hibiscus cultivar will delight you with large 8-10 inch wide blossoms from midsummer until frost! Rose pink buds open to glossy cotton candy pink flowers with heavily ruffled, overlapping petals and a red eye. Since it is an indeterminate bloomer, the flowers are produced at the nodes all up the flowering stems rather than just at the top like some other cultivars. The highly dissected, green leaves on nicely branched, red stems form a sizable clump in the landscape. 'Party Favor' is suitable en masse for the back of the border or planted singly as a focal point.

 


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 may prolong the bloom period. 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. Be advised that this species is always one of the last to emerge in spring. Its vigorous growth rate more than makes up for this late start, however. Japanese beetles find these plants especially delicious.
