Elizabeth Lawrence wrote of this in 1942, "on sultry mornings flowers of Hibiscus Manihot Sunset look as cool as lemon ice." This rare flower of soft yellow with a dark burgundy eye unfurls from teardrop-shaped buds. Its lobed leaves resemble maple leaves. Watered during dry spells, they will flower abundantly until frost. Listed in an 1894 catalog. Tolerates humid heat.

Are you a flower floozie? Do you want to fall in love again? Well this one will delight you - guaranteed! Big & glorious, 5" - 6" across, pale yellow Hibiscus type flowers with deep burgundy & garnet eyes, will give new meaning to your life (and your garden). Growing to 5' tall & 3’ wide, this stout and almost woody annual bears magnificent, tropical looking leaves, and so it looks cool even before it blooms mid-summer. Because of its' stateliness, it would look particularly nice along side a garden gate or against a weathered fence.
