Blue River II Hibiscus
Huge 10" Pure White Flowers
The Blue River II Hibiscus, Hibiscus x 'Blue River II', is the first true pure white flowering Hibiscus and should not be missed!
The Blue River II Hibiscus has a height of 4-5' and wonderful 10" dinner plate-sized, 5-petaled, hollyhock-like flowers blooms. Individual flowers are very short-lived (usually one day), but one or more flowers usually open each day, and this continues in succession from midsummer to early fall!
The light green leaves make a wonderful contrast. The Blue River II Hibiscus is easily grown in average, medium to wet soils in full sun. It does best in moist, organically rich soils, but does surprisingly well in average garden soils. Do not allowed to dry out.
Plant the Blue River II Hibiscus in locations protected from wind to minimize risk of wind burn. If you deadhead individual flowers this will maintain a neat and colorful plant appearance.
New growth shoots are slow to emerge in spring, however, once new growth begins, it proceeds quite rapidly; provide regular fertilization during this growing season.
Being a vigorous grower and sturdy plant, the Blue River II Hibiscus produces some of the largest flowers produced by any perennial!
