Hibiscus Blue River


Hibiscus Blue River 






Hibiscus Blue River 
Also known as: Hibiscus hybrid 

Hardy hybrid hibiscus with white overlapping petals, flowers 6-10″ across, clear white throat with no eyes.  Individual flowers remain in bloom for only one day, and one or more flowers will bloom each day from midsummer into early fall. Need warm temperatures before showing signs of new growth in late spring. Regular fertilizing during growing season needs protection from strong winds to minimize the risk of wind burn.  Maintain plant appearance by deadheading faded flowers and in late autumn prune back stem to 6-8 inches above the base of the plant.  Hybrid hibiscus is also winter hardy in lower zones 4 to 5.

Blooms are highly attractive to hummingbirds and bees, butterflies and other pollinators.
