Hibiscus tilaceus variegata also known as Tricolor Sea Hibiscus or Mahoe is a large growing shrub/tree that will mature at between 15 to 30 feet, depending on care and climate.
Primarily grown for the unique and beautifully colored large heart shaped leaves that emerge as pink bronze and mature to be splashed and striped in varying shades of green and cream.
The Mahoe blooms randomly in warm weather with a large, open, short lived flower that opens as a bright pastel yellow with a deep ruby/maroon eye and then gradually change to coral and then red before dropping away the next day.
Mahoes are exceptionally salt tolerant, so well suited for seaside planting, native to Florida, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, grow along the beach, brackish riverside, and mangrove swamps. They are tolerant of a wide range of poor sandy conditions, require little care or maintenance once well established.
Mahoes can be adapted to be grown indoors as a large potted plant, but will eventually become too large for the space.
Cannot be shipped to HI or PR. Maybe restricted from planting in some areas of some coastal counties and by coastal HOAs. Check local ordinances prior to ordering.
