Hibiscus 'Pink Elephant'

Hibiscus 'Pink Elephant' (PP#21883) forms a large 5 to 6' tall clump of soft green foliage that is covered with huge 12" medium pink petals with a darker rose-red eye in late summer. The flowers are the largest we've ever seen on a hibiscus plant.

Note: All of our Hibiscus plants are large field grown clumps with huge root systems so the price includes additional shipping to cover the extra size and weight.
 

Height: 5 - 6' Spacing: 48" apart or more

    Beautiful flowers. The plant is somewhat susceptible to wind damage. Strong gusty winds will break the large canes off at the base which is always disappointing. We grow several different varieties of hardy hibiscus and this is easily the largest flowered of the varieties we have.

    To prevent wind damage (and prevent winter damage to the crowns) it is best to plant these with the crowns fairly deep. No crowns or roots should ever show. If the plant is already established you can cover the base with a few inches of soil and then a layer of mulch, otherwise I would recommend lifting and planting deeper.

    Hope that helps!
