Quick Overview:

‘Mineru’, part of the First Editions® series, is commonly sold as FIRST EDITIONS® TAHITI™. It was bred and introduced by Minier Nursery in France. Its large, trumpet-shaped, semi-double blossoms are deep pink-purple with a deep red heart.


Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best flowering occurs in full sun. Prefers moist, organically rich soils, but tolerates poor soils and some drought. Very tolerant of summer heat and humidity. Generally tolerant of urban conditions. Prune to shape in spring. Pruning back to 2-3 buds in late winter may produce larger blooms. Easily propagated by stem cuttings. May be grown from seed, but seedlings may not have the exact same flower color as the parent.
