beautiful cv! hope it gets to europe some day, Charles Black-CVs are still rather rare here. I kind of like his breeding philosophy, there's quite some garden/european varieties crossed in if I got that correctly...
I have almost exclusively Charles Black plants in the ground in my garden (52 so far). I am finding that most other hybridizers varieties now days focus on the flower and not on the plant. That might be great for a greenhouse or potted plant, but not when it needs to live in the ground and make it through a cool winter. Charles plants are superior in this manner. Sure I see some of these flowers other hybridizers are doing and just drool. But I know I will only get a few months out of that plant and the rest of the time the flowers are poor and the bush is suffering from die back.
Don't take my word for it, but didn't I read somewhere that the flowers are edible - for us???Very nice plant,The Iguanas around here consider Hibiscus the Holy Grail of edibles
