Cajun hibiscus can make your garden sizzle

Cajun hibiscus, bred and released by the Dupont Nursery in Louisiana, feature flower colors ranging from bright yellows to pinks, reds and whites. Some of the more spectacular flowers offer color blends and bright red eyes.

Some flowers are wider than 9 inches in diameter. One of the most interesting flower features is the arrangement of stamens and pistil, which are unusually prominent and colorful.

Cajun hibiscus need cold-weather protection. Plants grown in containers can be moved more easily indoors before temperatures drop below freezing.

Cajun hibiscus, like 'High Definition,' offer gardeners plenty of color
choices, including bright yellows, pinks, reds, whites and color blends.
