Hibiscus Spinderella Rose Mallow
Huge pink and white pinwheel flowers will spin your head right around with Spinderella Rose Mallow Hibiscus. Mammoth, up to 9″ diameter, flowers of white with airbrushed bubblegum pink tips form a pretty pinwheel pattern. A dark red center with bright yellow stamens add a bullseye that can’t be missed. Dark green leaves form into a tidy mounded habit.
Tropical looking, but extremely cold hardy. Rose Mallow plants are perfect for backdrops, accents or centerpieces.
Plant in full sun, at least 6 hours of sun a day, although with afternoon sun you can get away with a little less. Plant in soil that has been amended with compost or other organic matter. Adding a starter fertilizer or giving a light application of an all purpose liquid fertilizer will help it get off to a fast start. We use Starter Plus Bio Tone Organic. Although drought tolerant they will perform best with consistent moisture and can tolerate boggy areas. Hibiscus die back to the ground every year. Cut back dead wood in early spring. Hibiscus are one of the last perennials to emerge in spring, sometimes not until mid to late spring. They grow quickly though, catching up fast to other perennials.
