A Rose is a Rose…


unless it is a Confederate Rose!


This Confederate Rose is new to the Automatic Garden, but not to the South.  It is actually a hibiscus (Hibiscus mutabilis) that blooms in the autumn. The flower of this particular one opens white and later turns pink.  The blossoms are gorgeous doubles that make up for the lanky look of the plant.   The bees cannot get enough of it!  This plant brings pure delight throughout the day with its ever changing flowers. It is appealing to the Automatic Garden as the Confederate Rose can be propagated with cuttings and seeds.  It is also hardy enough to come back after a (Southern) freeze.
