Hollywood™ Hibiscus Wild Child™ ppaf

He looks innocent, but WILD CHILD™ has a rowdy streak. Plant this star for nonstop, attention-grabbing color. His dramatic orange-red ruffled petals and dark center make him a perfect companion for other Hollywood stars. He’s most often seen with FIRECRACKER™ and BOMBSHELL™, but he gets along with just about everyone. Though he’s energetic, he’s not hard to contain. Plant as a thriller in your container gardens accessorize with other sun-loving, water-loving plants. Keep him fed and hydrated and he’ll put on a long-lasting show.
