'Cindy's Heart' is a very unusual hybrid in the world of exotic hibiscus. It is a 'High Voltage' "self-cross" or self-pollination - a special hybridizing technique of Charles Black. 'Cindy's Heart' has all the excellent qualities of 'High Voltage,' with the same kind of consistency, reliability, and ease of growing that 'High Voltage' has. The flower's color and form are always impeccable. Its bush is fast-growing, upright, well-branched, and easy to grow. It flowers prolifically, with large 7-9" (18-23 cm) singles in a pink that is so vivid it looks fluorescent, edged with the snowy white of 'High Voltage.' The flowers last for an amazing 4-6 days and do not fade. The vivid color lasts until the flower folds up. 'Cindy's Heart' is one of the few hibiscus hybrids that seems to love heat. The hotter it is, the more flowers the plant will have and the more vivid they will be. Brand new from HVH in 2007, limited quantities.
I am not sure if you're interested but I ordered a small 'Cindy's Heart' a few months back and it is doing great with my New Orleans 115 heat. I have 30 hibiscus and due to the heat I am babying them and trying to get through this heat spell. The 'Cindy's Heart' seems to be thriving in the above 100 temps! Everyday there are 2-3 blooms on it and it's only in a 10 inch pot! I have it out in full west side sun and it is thriving more than any of my other hibs (even the garden kind) which I am shading and babying. It seems the hotter and more direct sun it gets the more it thrives. I knew this was a new kind of hib you were selling this year and I wanted to let you know what my experience with it is in full August heat and sun in New Orleans. With the heat I might get 1 bloom once a week on my other hibs (even with your fertilizer) but Cindy is in constant bloom with no yellow leaves or any signs of stress with the heat and lack of rain. I thought if I sent my experience with it, it might help those looking for a heat loving full sun hib for down south. ~ Brook, New Orleans, Louisiana
