'Summer Storm' is everything you've ever wanted in a Hibiscus!  Deep wine purple foliage, a compact habit, 8-10 inch diameter pink flowers with rose veining and a deep magenta eye, and an extra long bloom time through early fall.  The foliage alone makes this plant fantastic even before it comes into bloom.  In the fall foliage turns to shades of orange and red, making it an eye catcher all season long!  Flower buds are produced at the nodes along much of the stem as well as at the tips.  That means more flowers for a longer bloom period!

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 will improve the appearance of the plant. 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. A strong pair of loppers or a saw will be necessary to cut this plant back.  Be advised that Hibiscus is always one of the last perennials to emerge in spring. Its vigorous growth rate more than makes up for this late start, however. Japanese beetles find these plants especially delicious.
