Sunrise Mimosa, Tiki Temptation, South Pacific Sipper, Rum Runner Remix, Monsoon Mixer. The names could be cocktails on a Key West bar menu. Instead, they''re Tropic Escape Hibiscus: big, showy blooms, more flamboyantly and uniquely colored than the typical hibiscus.
Big Blooms. With seven-inch across blooms ranging from frilled to wildly colored and ruffled, Tropic Escape Hibiscus have large, deep green, shiny foliage, and attractive shrubby habits. The colors themselves are spectacular, with bright oranges, yellows, reds, pinks, white and blends of colors. Some even have double blossoms and generally stay open longer than the normal hibiscus.
Tropical Punch. One of the quickest transformations from winter-weary bare patios to tropical delight is with color, and our line of Tropic Escape Hibiscus bloom like crazy from spring to frost. So create a backyard retreat with your Tropic Escape Hibiscus. Their bright hues add great colorful alternatives to your existing porch or patio décor, making your backyard an oasis full of tropical festivity.
Cool Shades. The Pantone Color Institute® decreed that 2012 is the year of Tangerine Tango, which they describe as "a spirited reddish orange that continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward." An enticing juicy orange, Tangerine Tango is a vivacious and appealing refresher to enliven any gardener’s outlook this spring--in petal form. Try ‘Mandarin Mojito’ or ‘Tiki Temptation’ to infuse radiant shadings of a sunset, marrying the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic tint that emanates fun, sun and energy.
Overwintering. Hibiscus plants bloom from spring to fall. Come late fall, move your plant indoors, but don’t be alarmed if your hibiscus doesn’t flower or ends up adding yellow leaves over the winter. This is just the hibiscus telling you it does not like the winter and you should continue to care for the hibiscus normally. Once outdoor conditions improve and you move it outside again, your hibiscus will recuperate.
