Luna Pink Swirl Hibiscus

The improved Luna Series hibiscus is hardy to USDA zone 5 and in cooler climates, they benefit from some light mulch in the winter. The distinctive trumpet-shaped blooms open to a width of 6" to 8". The 3 foot tall by 2 foot wide plants are beautiful single specimen plants, but are also bushy, making very effective borders and hedges. Though a bit pricey they will provide a remarkable experience each year with their many blooms.

    I recommend this product
    Two out of five, not bad

    Tried to start all five hibiscus seeds. Three germinated and two survived beyond 1/2” and are now a foot tall. Don’t expect to see flowers this year, but hope to put into dormancy and reawaken in April. Not as impressive as buying full grown plants, but more satisfying.

    they really worked

    5 out of 5 germination back in January, lost 2 plants to dropping them in the greenhouse but the other three did well and flowered by June. Now the challenge is overwintering them.

    Afraid I came up zero

    Afraid I came up zero on these. Between the raccoons and my cats the trays got dumped.
