Hollywood Hibiscus Chatty Cathy (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis HOLLYWOOD ‘8413-4’)
Hollywood Hibiscus Chatty Cathy
‘Chatty Cathy’, from the Hollywood Hibiscus collection, Hibiscus rosa-sinensis HOLLYWOOD™ ‘8413-4’, is not about to let you walk by her without getting your attention. How could you not stop when the brighter-than-the-sun yellow flowers practically scream for you to come over and take a look?
These classic tropical flowers, with their yellow petals and rich pink throats, conjure up an island paradise like few other plants can. The big, bold flowers just don’t stop all summer long. The Hollywood™ Hibiscus collection was bred specifically to bloom profusely and to have excellent disease resistance, too.
In tropical and semi-tropical zones 9-11, Chatty Cathy will grow an impressive size. Here she could flower all year long! She makes perfect evergreen flowering hedges or privacy screens with dark green foliage making a perfect backdrop for the bright flowers.
‘Chatty Cathy’ is a perfect container plant in non-tropical locations, too. Just make sure she comes to live inside by a bright sunny window during the winter months (she need 6 hours of sun a day) for her to stay green until she can go outside again.
Try putting her in large pots on decks, patios or poolside with other big leaved tropicals for an instant endless-summer paradise wherever you live. Make sure she gets plenty of consistent water to look her best. (If she gets too dry she will drop her buds.)
For truly bright color and easy care you’ll want to invite this ‘Chatty Cathy’ to the party!
