Hibiscus 'Airbrush Effect' PP29295 (25) Bare Root Plants
Common Name: Rose Mallow
The beautiful art deco pattern of this Hardy Hibiscus looks like it has been spray painted, and you'll love how it makes your garden look! 8-8½", vibrant pink flowers with salmon tones have an airbrushed central white halo and a small dark red eye. Overlapping petals create a three dimensional look to the flowers. The rich, dark green foliage forms a compact habit. Lots of flower buds translates to a long season of bloom, so you can enjoy these flowers for many weeks. Use 'Airbrush Effect' as a focal point in your sun garden.
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.
