Simply stunning but somewhat mysterious, best describes our new hibiscus ‘Bayou Rose,’ a profuse bloomer of fully double 5” flowers with chameleon qualities. On the first day the blooms are lavender with a slightly ruffled pink edge. On the second day, as the flowers age, the blooms turn completely lavender (as shown in the main photo) and their beauty is captivating. ‘Bayou Rose’ has many good features. It blooms at a young age and makes a nice, erect bush perfect for a potted plant or a standard. As with most hibiscus, grow in full sun with a steady supply of water and fertilizer.

• Water on visual soil dryness or plant wilt. Severe wilt can hurt
them. Careful watering is critical during the winter or anytime
when the light level is low and temperatures are cool.
• Under high light and warm temperatures they are
heavy feeders and need a balanced fertilizer applied

help induce blooms.
• Flowering varies widely between varieties. Full sun, warm
temperatures, a balanced fertilizer and careful attention to
watering will produce the best results for your hibiscus.
