Peppermint Schnapps Hibiscus

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 10 September 2020 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

A tall series, the Peppermint Schnapps Hibiscus forms bushy upright mounds of dark green maple-shaped leaves. Huge saucer-shaped flowers appear in mid summer and continue until frost. This selection has big blooms of rose-pink with a red eye. Plants prefer evenly moist soil and sunny conditions. Stems die back completely to the ground in winter, but new growth is slow to appear in spring.
