Interesting Notes

125%;">Cherub is a unique hybrid that is very compact and contains some Hibiscus rosa sinensis in its genes making it tropical in aspect. It is only 2-3 feet and has glabrous green "Maple" leaves and soft pink tubular flowers. Looks great in the landscape or in a pot on the patio. And it's hardy, like all of the Fleming Hardy Hibiscus to -30 degrees fahrenheit so there is no need to bring it in in the winter..
