The flowers of this Hibisdus variety are so amazingly bizarre that at first sight it is hardly possible to recognize the relationship to Hibiscus. The pink flowers have a tattered look and are bent backward to the blossom peduncle so that the flower’s pistil and stamina are exposed, making them a favoured runway for butterflies. Even very young Coral Hibiscus blossom all summer long, provided the necessary warmth during day- and night-time. Outdoors it usually blossoms from July/ August, in a wintergarden it starts earlier. If placed outside, a wind-protected, sunny and warm place guarantees good bloom. With its strung-out, upright growth habit and its bent shoot-tips the Coral Hibiscus differs from the Hibiscus/ Chinese Rose. The extraordinary flowers not only grow at the shoots’ tip but also from the leaf axils. In a winter garden, this makes the Coral Hibiscus an elegant solitary plant that can well be combined with groundcover plants.
