Hibiscus - Blue River II
Huge 10" Pure White Flowers
The Hibiscus 'Blue River II', Hibiscus moscheutos, is the first true pure white flowering Hibiscus and should not be missed!
It has a plant 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. 'Blue River II' 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 'Blue River II' 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, 'Blue River II' produces some of the largest flowers produced by any perennial!
