Hibiscus x sp. 'Peppermint Flare'
Hibiscus, Peppermint Flare
This perennial Hibiscus hybrid is a 2010 Texas Superstar award winner. It was selected by Greg Grant and is floral sport or perhaps a seedling of 'Flare' a H. moscheutos hybrid developed by Dr. Sam McFadden of Somerville, Tennessee. 'Peppermint Flare' is notable for the very large 8-10 inch faint pink to white flowers with a red center and streaks of scarlet in the petals. It is said to be a relatively short perennial 4-5 feet tall. Like most native perennial Hibiscus species it is probably happy in very wet sites or in ordinary sunny garden situations with adequate water.
