Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Apple Blossom'

Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Apple Blossom'
If you have a coastal garden with pure sand to work with this is the perfect Hibiscus to grow, particularly if you want a tall growing, screening, or hedging variety. It can be left unpruned as it is naturally dense in habit while the single rose pink flowers are produced in great numbers even if they only last a day. Perhaps the only down side to growing it is that chewing insects seem to favour the soft leaves, though unless you are a garden perfectionist this should not be an issue. What's a few chewed leaves between friends. A safe plant based spray will give the critters a bad headache and perhaps they will move on to another food source.
2017 update: I am currently out of stock.
