Winter-hardy hibiscus is one of the most sought after ornamental plants due to its tropical-looking flowers and ability to grow in the ground almost everywhere in the USA except for Alaska. Until recently, the flower colors in this species have been very limited, basically only red, pink and white, singly or in combination. In the past eight years, Dariusz and a team have created many new colors in this species, including blue, silver-gray, salmon, magenta, maroon, purple, all shades of reds and pinks, and flowers with dual or triple colors.
