On of our obsessive plant friends, Glen Melcher, of Tioga, Lousiaiana, sent us several seedlings a few years ago, from his cross of Hibiscus paramutabilis x mutabilis. We made our final selection this fall, which we’ve christened Hibiscus ‘Tioga Party’. This 12′ tall x 12′ wide beast puts on quite a show, starting several weeks before the later blooming Hibiscus mutabilis. If you want to really impress your neighbors, I expect this will do the trick. We’ll begin propagation next year, so it should show up in the 2025 Plant Delights catalog. Hardiness Zone 7b-10b.
