Southern Gardening: Use Cajun hibiscus to spice up the landscape
Several years ago, a new group of tropical hibiscus exploded onto the market with vibrant and exciting colors -- a Technicolor dream.
Thirty-eight fantastic selections of Cajun hibiscus, bred and released by the Dupont Nursery in Louisiana, feature colors ranging from bright yellows to pinks, reds and whites. Some of the more spectacular blossoms are those with color blends and those with bright red eyes.
The size of the flowers can be unbelievable; some blooms are wider than nine inches across. One of the most interesting features, especially to plant geeks like myself, is the arrangement of stamens and pistil, which are unusually prominent and colorful.
