Mango Tango blooms with well formed, multicolored, 7-8" flowers in an array of wild colors. The heat of summer adds bright white spots to the already-wild mix of colors. The bush is grows to medium height and has an upright growth pattern. Mango Tango is the offspring of Mango Madness and Flash Dancer. Released from HVH in 2006.
