Hibiscus mos 'Starry Starry Nights

Hibiscus moscheutos
'Starry Starry Nights'
Next Crop ready in  Spring 2023
Photo from Walters Gardens
Darkest foliage Hibiscus to date. Incredibly dark, near-black, broad, maple-like leaves form an upright clump in the landscape. Interesting 7-8” flowers are pale pink with darker pink speckling and veining. The flowers are held on bright green carpels, which contrast nicely with the dark foliage. Flowers are produced from the top to the bottom of the plant, rather than only at the top like some older cultivars.
