Hibiscus syriacus 'AartDevil1' (Red Devil)
Ahead of Plantarium next month (Aug 22-24) details of the entrants for the Novelty Inspection and Awards are being released.
Hibiscus syriacus 'AartDevil1' (Red Devil) is a valuable addition to the garden Hibiscuses and was bred by Mario van Aart at their nursery in Oudenbosch (pictured right). Red Devil is a compact cultivar that blooms abundantly.
Intense Red Flowers
The intense red flowers contrast beautifully with the dark green foliage. The flowers are unusually large for an H. syriacus cultivar. An additional advantage is that Red Devil is sterile. Red Devil is suitable for flowering hedges, in large flowerbeds, as a stand-alone or in pots.
The plant flowers from summer until early autumn. It was submitted and is marketed by Van Vliet New Plants from Stroe. Protection under plant breeding legislation has been applied for.
