The dark foliage of this beautiful hibiscus will be covered with large 8" flowers of pink with dark pink throats. Because the foliage is dark it gives the 'mysterious' illusion that the flowers are floating on air!
Hardy hybrid hibiscus is a vigorous, sturdy, erect but sometimes shrubby, woody-based perennial that typically grows to 4-8’ tall. These hybrids are winter hardy to zone 4 which distinguishes them from the many tropical to semi-tropical hibiscus on the market today. Each of their beautiful disc-shaped flowers can measure 6-10” across. Individual flowers remain in bloom for only one day, but one or more flowers usually open each day, in succession, over a long mid-summer to early fall sometimes to first frost bloom period.
You do have to be patient because they come into leaf very late in the season – around June in some cases. But the very lateness of the hibiscus is its strong point – especially when it comes to the flowers. That being said, each plant can produce up to 250 flowers per growing season!
