'Acapulco Gold' is a brand new HVH seedling that blooms with 7-9" vivid flowers in yellow, orange, and white with a deep red eye and a bit of a pink bleed. It is a prolific bloomer and looks like it may turn out to be one of our most floriferious multi-colored hibiscus. The bush is vigorous, well-branched, and easy to grow. 'Acapulco Gold' is the offspring of Fifth Dimension and Georgia's Pearl, and it seems to have inherited the most positive qualities of both its parents. Released from HVH in 2008.
