Looking for tropical hibiscus as tough as "Brilliant"

bossyvossyMarch 30, 2013

A number of my neighbors grow Brilliant, a beautiful red tropical h. I am looking for a yellow hibiscus with the same vigorous and tough qualities as Brilliant. I live in houston area. any suggestions. Would prefer single blooms.

Bossyvossy,
I have 2 suggestions. 'Butterfly' and 'Sunny Wind'. The first is all yellow and the second has a red eye.
Hope this helps,
Ed

If you're in the Houston area, check with Cornelius Nursery. They usually have a lot of tropicals. I looked up Brilliant and it's sold by Monrovia, which Cornelius sells. Or, you could contact Monrovia and ask them what would be a good equivalent that has the qualities you're looking for. I found one on Monrovia's page that I've had before and am going to try to get again!

Here is a link that might be useful: Monrovia's Hibiscus Collection
