'Mandala'


The flower of exotic hibiscus 'Mandala' is a large 7-9" single with attractive form and a touch of ruffliness around the edges. The multiple rings of color create a beautiful display that is enhanced by the way each color shoots rays into the next ring of color. The flowers starts with a large, soft pink eye that radiates into silvery white, which radiates through a blue ring. The blue and white radiate together into the hot pink body, and the pink radiates into an apricot-orange edge. The whole effect is like a very large, radiating mandala ~ a beautiful symbol representing unity and spirituality throughout the world. 'Mandala' gets its multiple rings and its blue color from giant father 'Serenity.' Bright orange mother 'Saffron' gives it the bright pink and orange pigments as well as the large, soft eye. It's an odd combination of parents and the result is an unusual and special flower. The bush is upright and medium sized. Released from HVH in 2019. Hybridizer: C. Black
