Fantasia, by definition, is a music composition that has a free form and often improvisatory style. We can only image that the Fleming brothers realized they were singing a different tune when this beauty was discovered in their breeding program. Not only are the lavender blooms a bit unusual in the hardy hibiscus pool, but coupling that with the large size and perfect petal set is even more of a triumph. 'Fantasia' offers a compact habit, large 9" blooms, and a long bloom season. A definite free form and off beat hibiscus! Patented plant cannot be propagated.
