Remember, this is not a tropical Hibiscus. Lavendar Chiffon grows beautifully in Central Florida. I love the blooms, but couldn't grow it well in the heat of S. Florida, where growing tropical Hibiscus comes naturally. This was one of the first plants I purchased, along with White Chiffon, when I moved to DeLand,


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

San Diego, California
Bartow, Florida
Deland, Florida
Swansea, Massachusetts
Cleveland, Mississippi
