'Elephant Ear' is a classic favorite for tropical gardens in the eastern United States. It blooms with pure white 5-7" double flowers. The bush is tall, vigorous, and very upright. It is a fast grower, easy to grow, and a good bloomer. Sometimes considered a garden variety, it is one of the older of the modern hybridized hibiscus. When conditions are right, it is also one of the very few lightly scented hibiscus.
