Magic Carpet Ride



Magic Carpet Ride's Beautiful, Small Bush


Magic Carpet Ride's Changing Colors


Magic Carpet Ride

Very eye-catching and unusual 3-5" mini flowers cover this small, compact bush with full, pretty foliage. The bush stays small - under 3 feet high even at the most mature age. It is a steady bloomer that always has 1-3 blooms on it, sometimes even in cold weather. What a beautiful, vivid combination of colors resulted from this cross of The Path and 5th Dimension! Magic Carpet Ride grows and blooms equally well in full sun, in shade, and in the house. Released in 2004 from HVH.

HVH Comment:
Magic Carpet Ride made it through the week's deep freeze we had last winter better than any other of our many hibiscus. It was completely unprotected during the entire week, and came out of it without losing a leaf - its leaves never even turned yellow. The week after the freeze, it even bloomed! It was just a single flower, but it was still amazing. For such a tiny little hibiscus, it sure is sturdy. ~ Cindy, HVH, California
