I have had my Big Red for three years. It is over five feet tall and I have it in a large cage as it is next to the house. The flowers are breath taking and so many! It is a keeper!

Last winter I ordered six dorminant twigs, not believing they would grow. They are beautiful and so BIG. I definitely will order more later this winter.

I bought one of these 2 years ago. The first summer I put it in a pot because it was so small. It grew to a nice size and bloomed late in the season. At the end of that first summer we put it in the ground and trimmed it down. The second summer this thing exploded into a bush, mid to late summer it produced unbelievable huge red flowers. It is a real show stopper. I'm going to order another one. I planted it in a very warm sunny area. It is well worth the year you must wait to let it develop.

Our Big Red Hardy Hibiscus lives up to its name with gigantic brilliant red blooms. Hardy hibiscus plants add gorgeous color to gardens and lawns in many ways from stems and blooms to prominent pistil and stamen centers. A perennial hibiscus, Big Red Hardy Hibiscus can grow up to four to five feet, with a two-to-three foot spread, and should be planted about two to four feet apart. Deeply lobed, long and dissected foliage for these hardy hibiscus plants come dark green with a red copper to purple cast and red-purple stems. This hibiscus' flowers run deep crimson red from the middle of summer to the first serious frost of fall. Full sun is best for top flowering power. Soil should be moist, but drained well for outstanding results. These flowers are huge, with blooms from eight to twelve inches that open into gorgeous saucer-shaped flowers with overlapping petals. Combining attractive red-purple stems with giant deep red colors in a two-pronged visual display creates better landscapes and gardens in all types of climates. Big bold colors sprout naturally with no pruning necessary. Perennial hibiscus comes up year after year in late spring responding to warm ground temperatures. They grow rapidly once up coming into bloom quickly once established.
