Exotic Hibiscus

'Blackbird Flying'

Exotic hibiscus 'Blackbird Flying' blooms profusely with many 6-8" soft blue-gray flowers with hints of pink around the edge and a black eye haloed in deep burgundy. We have been edging toward a black eye for several years, and we are finally perfecting it. The eye is so unusual, and the flowers bloom so prolifically that the flowers look like flocks of blackbirds perched on their bushes. The parents of 'Blackbird Flying' are two blue hibiscus, 'Heartbreaker' and 'Chianti Classico.' The bush is upright and medium sized. Released from HVH in 2017. Hybridizer: C. Black
