Hibiscus 'El Capitolio Sport'
(Syn.: Hibiscus 'Salmon El Capitolio')
Quantity in Basket:
With soft apricot ruffled petals and a scarlet red center, it's even more colorful than its red parent, 'El Capitolio'. It has a most unusual formation with the end of the style massed with ruffled petals, resembling a flower within a flower or giving it a poodle effect. With flowers are up to 5 inches in size, it's a very prolific bloomer from early summer until fall. 'El Capitolio Sport' is the official (2002) registered International Hibiscus Society name given to it. This tall upright vigorous grower is ideal for training into a patio tree. Give full sun, good air circulation, and regular feeding. Best when allowed to be slightly dry between waterings. Protect from frost. USDA zones 9 - 11.
