Compact, well-branched, rounded clump of mid-green, hydrangea-like leaves
8-10" wide blossoms have rounded, overlapping petals with a hint of ruffling on the edges.
Dramatic deep red blossoms with a blackish red center and veining.
Mid summer onwards
Dig a hole large enough to give roots plenty of room. Plant firmly and water in thoroughly.
Well drained, humus enriched. Will tolerate wet soils
Our darkest red flowered Hibiscus! Near-black, glossy, pointy buds open to lustrous, dramatic deep red blossoms with a blackish red center and veining. Bright yellow pollen on the red anthers in the center of each blossom pops with contrast. The 8-10" wide blossoms have rounded, overlapping petals with a hint of ruffling on the edges.

When this thing arrived I was very disappointed. It was basically a stick about the size of my thumb with what looked like a few dried up hairs attached. But I followed their planting instructions anyway, not expecting much for my efforts. In only 2 months time it has grown to about 3' tall and is loaded with blooms. They are 8 to 10 inches across and just gorgeous! I am very pleased with Michigan Bulb and would not hesitate to order from them again!
