Alyogyne huegelii 'Monterey Bay', 10 seeds
Blue Hibiscus lovers alert! Here is the same fast-growing shrub that blooms almost continuously throughout the year starting from mid spring, and with the same large, vivid, silky flowers that have delicate petals which slightly overlap and yellow stamens. BUT! This particular variety of Alyogyne huegelii is extremely scarce and has darker flowers than most. As such, the blossoms seems almost bicolor as the purple fades towards the center noticeably, and that is the trademark of Deep Monterey Bay. I have been told that a light purple variety of Monterey Bay is available outside of California, but if you want the deep purple one, this is it. Green, hairy, deeply divided leaves. Hardy from zone 9 upwards. 6 feet tall and wide (can be kept smaller by heavy pruning). Full sun. Any well-drained soil. Regular water, drought-tolerant when established. Fresh, exclusive seeds, harvested 06/2014.
