A New Flower Color for your Garden
If you want an unusual flower color for your yard or garden, plant Minerva Hibiscus (Hibiscus syriacus 'Minerva') and you'll be awestruck. Pinkish-lavender blooms with red centers are such a standout against the dark-green foliage. And unlike other blink-and-you-miss-their-flowering-season plants, Minerva Hibiscus produces few seeds, which translates to more flowers!
Passing the Test of Time
The U.S. National Arboretum introduced the Minerva Hibiscus in 1986 as a refined and sophisticated cultivar that was more floriferous, more heat-tolerant, and more vigorous than previous varieties.
• Low-maintenance.This is not a fussy plant. You won't even have to prune it to keep it flowering profusely.
• Drought-tolerant.At first, after you plant Minerva Hibiscus in your garden, you'll have to keep it watered to help its roots become established. But mature plants are highly drought-tolerant, so you'll only need to water them during long periods of no rainfall.
• Deer-resistant.It's so tough for many gardeners to find plants that deer won't chew to the ground! Although even thorns and thistles won't stop a ravenous deer, Minerva Hibiscus is remarkably deer-resistant.
Easy Care and Design Tips
Finding the perfect planting spot where Minerva Hibiscus will give you her best performance is easy as 1-2-3: 1) full sun, 2) well-drained soil and 3) an early-spring application of a slow-release fertilizer. This well-mannered plant is equally at ease as a landscape specimen or container plant. You'll have to keep container plants watered more often, but the extra effort is worth it if you want to make an impact statement -- plant Minerva Hibiscus shrubs in matching urns on either side of your home's sunny entrance for a glorious show of color all summer!
