Hibiscus mutabilis (Confederate Rose / Cotton Rose)

Hibiscus mutabilis (Confederate Rose / Cotton Rose)

This is a beauty we found flowering in a garden in late summer in Waihi. The Cotton Rose has quite large semi-double white flowers which gradually turn pale pink before aging dark pink. All present on the tree at one time. A good food source for bees. The large grass green, maple shaped leaves are soft in texture. These turn butter yellow in autumn, deciduous. A stunning, upright small tree for mild climates or a multi-leadered shrub in cooler places. Can be pruned to maintain as a shrub.
