    Hibiscus Disco Belle

    Posted by Donna Pfirman on Jun 7th 2021

    These are awesome. I started the first batch a little too late outside in 2020. This year I planted the 10 Disco Belle Hibiscus seeds. Both times I had 90% germination. The plants are healthy and growing like weeds. They are about 2 feet high. I will transplant when the root system is a bit bigger. I am excited to see what color each is. I do not expect them to blossom this year. Nut if they do, I will be pleadantly surprised. My grandma grew red hibiscus outside on the southwest side of our summer kitchen. I love these because they bring such fond memories of my childhood. The newer genetic hibiscus are pretty and all, but they do not give me the heartwarming feelings I get with heirlooms. I had a difficult time finding seeds. Your prices are great. Thank you!
