A loosely double Tropical Hibiscus with large deep red flowers that are borne in abundance practically throughout the year. This is a fairly full and compact growing hibiscus that lends itself to containers and tropical garden settings. The Double Red Hibiscus is considered to be one of the first cultivated Chinese Hibiscus,Hibiscus rosa-sinensis,the latter of which translates to the 'rose of China' or 'Chinese rose'. Interestingly, like we've seen other double flowered Hibiscus do, flowers produced during winter can be single, though when the days lengthen the plant goes back to producing the typical double flowers again. The flowers of the red forms of Tropical Hibiscus are used to shine shoes in places like India giving it the names Shoe Plant and Shoe Black Plant. Item# 9683.

Double White Angel's Trumpet, Devil's Trumpet

Datura fastuosa 'Double White', D. metel

8-10" long, double, creamy white, night fragrant, trumpet-shaped flowers are produced throughout the warmer months of the year or nearly year round when grown in a greenhouse or conservatory. The Double White Angel's Trumpet, a form of Datura metel, is often grown as an annual or short-lived shrub-like perennial and it is easy enough to save a few seed from the large capsules once they split open to grow new ones for next year. These are fast growing small to medium-sized, shrub-like, frost tender tropical plants that are easy and rewarding. Also known as Devil's Trumpet, due to the poisonous properties of this member of the Nightshade family. Provide a full sun to partly shaded site, in a well-drained, fertile soil with average moisture for optimum vigor and flowering. The large white fragrant flowers should be a great addition to a moon-moth garden. Item# 12941
