Talipariti glabrum

(Syn: Hibiscus glaber), Mountain Hao, Mountain Haw Tree
Talipariti glabrum

Code: 90560

Price: $13.95

Quantity in Basket: None

Family: Malvaceae

This rare small shrubby tree is similar to Talipariti tiliaceum (Sea Hibiscus). It differs mainly in leaf and petal formation. The medium green heart-shaped leaves contrast nicely to the 3" bright yellow flowers. Flowers have a reddish central spot and deepen to orange as they age. Blooms in summer and fall. Grows up to 10 feet tall. Like Talipariti tiliaceum, this plant does well in subtropical coastal locations exposed to salty air and winds. It prefers full sun and rich, well-drained soil, and makes a good specimen bush, small tree, or can be trimmed as a hedge. Native to the Bonin Islands (Okinawa island group), which are subtropical oceanic islands in the northwestern Pacific. Talipariti glabrum evolved from Talipariti tiliaceum due to the geographic isolation of these islands. There the tree is harvested for local use of its wood. USDA zones 9 - 12.
