A low maintenance hardy perennial hibiscus that features huge 8" hot cerise red flowers on top of medium green, maple-like foliage. Does best in full sun and moist well drained soil. Cut back in early spring.
Hardy hibiscus are a zone 5, hardy to -20 degrees Fahrenheit! Keep in mind that plants die all the way to the ground in the winter and do not leaf out until much later in the season than other plants, sometimes as late as July! They love lots of water once they start growing and a very hot and sunny place. They can grow to be up to 6' tall! Just be patient with them in the spring while they're hitting the snooze button!
