You will love the short but full, compact habit and scarlet red flowers of this new Hibiscus selection. An improvement over older cultivars with its pristine habit and substantial flowering ability over a long bloom period. Since it is an indeterminate bloomer, the flowers are produced at the nodes all up the flowering stems rather than just at the top like some other cultivars. Near-black buds open to glossy, deep scarlet red, 7-8 inch wide flowers with heavily overlapping petals. These dramatic blossoms cover the plant from midsummer to early fall. They are set against a perfect backdrop of glossy deep green, leathery, maple-like leaves with slight purple overtones.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Hibiscus love the sun and need moist, well-drained soil. Keeping these plants watered will result in larger flowers and lush foliage. Deadheading may prolong the bloom period. It is best to plant Hibiscus in the garden before the heat of the summer arrives, and should be heavily mulched the first winter. In spring, cut back any remaining stems before new growth appears. Be advised that this species is always one of the last to emerge in spring. Its vigorous growth rate more than makes up for this late start, however. Japanese beetles find these plants especially delicious.
