Hibiscus 'Ballet Slippers'

Hardy Hibiscus

Plant Type: Perennial

Part of the SUMMERIFIC Series, this new hardy perennial fits the need of providing a Hibiscus lineup with greater feminine appeal. Huge 7" wide, ruffled flowers are white with a deep red eye. The edges of the petals are edged with blush pink. Combined with the heavily overlapping petals, this creates a pinwheel effect on the flowers. Attractive, healthy leaves are bright green with slightly serrated edges. A polished, upright habit and extremely high bud count with good axillary branching ensures that this Hibiscus will have a longer season of color, from late summer through early fall. Flowers are produced from the top to the bottom of the plant, rather than just at the top like some other cultivars. ‘Ballet Slippers’ is the perfect backdrop or centerpiece for sunny borders.
