Pink Mallow (Hibiscus Moscheutos Disco Belle Mix) 10 seeds (#2049)
‘Disco Belle’ is a compact F1 hybrid cultivar which grows to 80 cm tall. Each flower (to 15 cm diameter) features five overlapping petals which are red or pink on the edges fading to white with a deep pinkish-red eye surrounding a prominent creamy white to pale yellow central staminal column.
Individual flowers last only 1-2 days, but new flowers open each day from July to September in rapid succession over a long July to September bloom period. At the peak of bloom, a large plant can produce 20 or more flowers per day. It is native to wet spots (marshes, swamps, floodplains, river banks, moist meadows, and moist woods).
