VERNON – The winter-hardy hibiscus breeding program led by Dr. Dariusz Malinowski, a Texas A&M AgriLife Research forage agronomist and plant breeder at Vernon, is in the spotlight again.

“We are about to conclude our seventh breeding season, and we have another 20 or so unique hibiscus hybrids that may beautify gardens across the U.S. one day,” Malinowski said.

To date, he said the breeding team has disclosed about 220 hibiscus breeding lines to Texas A&M University Office of Commercialization, and the first plants may be for sale in spring 2018.
