Hibiscus moscheutos Luna White

Dwarf Hardy Hibiscus

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.270.130

(=‘Balhibwhi’) Hardy Hibiscus are a wonderful addition to the summer garden with their exceptionally large blooms appearing in midsummer and continuing until frost. This compact variety forms a medium-sized bushy mound of dark green leaves. The flowers, which can be 8 inches across, feature showy white petals with a large red eye in the centre and white stamens. Excellent as a specimen in small spaces and in containers. Attractive to butterflies. Plants prefer evenly moist soil and sunny conditions and flowering is best in regions with hot summers. Stems die back completely to the ground in winter, but new growth is slow to appear in spring, so be patient! Old stems can be pruned to the ground in midspring. A thick mulch for the first winter is recommended, especially in Zones 4 and 5. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
