Description

Some plants simply cannot be fully appreciated until you've seen them in person - Paraplu Violet hibiscus is just such a plant. As you can see, its color is beautiful, but seeing it in person is a totally different experience. Its luminous flowers have a super-intense hue that stops people in their tracks, as we have seen multiple times touring visitors around our trial garden when this plant was still under evaluation. Like Paraplu Pink Ink hibiscus, this beauty from Minier Nursery was selected for its extraordinary bloom size and color, as well as its elegant habit.
