Hibiscus 'Airbrush Effect' (Rose Mallow)

Rose Mallow 'Airbrush Effect', Hardy Hibiscus 'Airbrush Effect'


Noted for its abundant flower buds and long blooming season, Hibiscus 'Airbrush Effect' (Rose Mallow) is a compact, well-branched, deciduous shrub with large, vibrant pink flowers, up to 8 in. across (20 cm), adorned with a white halo and a small dark red eye. Their overlapping petals unfurl as the countless buds open to become wide and flat. Blooming continuously from midsummer to fall, each flower lasts about one day and stands out against the rich, dark green foliage. Perfect backdrop or centerpiece for a sunny border. Great for containers too.

  • Typically grows up to 3-4 ft. tall (90-120 cm) with a spread of 4-5 ft. (120-150 cm).
  • A full sun to part shade lover, this plant is best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils.
  • Fairly pest and disease free. Watch for aphids, mealybugs and thrips. Deer resistant.
  • Plant in shrub borders or large containers for dramatic summer blooms.
  • Cut it down in spring before new growth appears.
