Hibiscus hybrid ‘Citrus Mist’

A useful and decorative tall shrub to 2 metres tall, with large showy and lightly fragrant lemon yellow flowers with dark red centres.  It is compact, and can be pruned after flowering to further encourage a more dense habit. Great for screening and informal hedging, coastal gardens.  Flower petals are edible and can be used for jam, syrup and cordial.  Can be grown in all states, and has the advantage of being tolerant of light frost and drought. Can have occasional spikiness to stems.
