Tropical Hibiscus 'Scarlet Beauty'

Hibiscus 'Scarlet Beauty'

'Scarlet Beauty' is a true beauty with large velvety 7-9" deep rose red flowers that are difficult to capture with a camera. The color shimmers and varies on each flower from dark scarlet, to vivid Christmas red, to bright fuchsia, giving this flower an intensity and 3-dimensional look that create the effect of velvet. This is the flower that replaces our classic hibiscus 'Velvet Illusion.' 'Scarlet Beauty' is a huge improvement over 'Velvet Illusion' on all counts - a stronger, more vigorous bush, a much better bloomer, and a more durable flower. The bush is strong and vigorous as would be expected from the cross of 'Saffron' and 'Berried Treasure.' Like its sibling, the solid white hibiscus 'Ghost,' 'Scarlet Beauty' is one of the four large, solid-colored "podmates" featured in a previous HVH newsletter. Released from HVH in 2010.
