This tri-colored hibiscus is one of the many beautiful flowers growing in the gardens around the Peirce home, which is at the center of the Longwood Gardens. In 1700, a Quaker family named Peirce purchased this property and established a working farm. Joshua and Samuel Peirce began planting an arboretum on the farm in 1798. The farm was purchased in 1906 by Pierre du Pont so he could preserve the trees, and from 1907 until the 1930s Mr. du Pont created most of what is enjoyed today, a magnificent horticultural showplace.
