Product Details

Product Details

A must-have for hot-border gardeners, this Swamp Rose-Mallow hybrid sports leathery, deep purple foliage all season long.

Hibiscus is a huge genus of more than 200 species, practically all native to tropical areas. If you're the type who goes for minuscule flowers, then this is not a genus for you. The plants produce big bright flowers that appear endlessly starting in high summer. Give them moist, well-drained soil and plenty of heat and sun. Stems will die down to the ground over winter in colder climates.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Hardy Hibiscus

A viewer from Macomb, Michigan

I bought 3 of these roots last year. I was still deciding where to put them in my yard, so I planted one in late May, one In early June, and one in mid June. From these bare roots all 3 of them thrived and bloomed. The one I planted in late May in the south part of my yard was the most prolific and grew to 4 feet in all directions along with constant blooms popping each day. The 2nd one grew to over 4 foot tall and slightly narrower because it was sandwiched between 2 prairie grass plants. It was on the north side of my house so the only direct sun was early in the morning. The 3rd I planted in between 2 flowering pears and 2 prairie grasses on my north facing boulevard. It got some sun throughout the middle of the day with half the day shaded. They all did well. I cut them all back to the ground in the fall. It is now late May in my 2nd year and I know that they should be sprouting from the ground soon. I will let everyone know about this years results.
The only thing that seems a bit disappointing is that the flowers pop open with impressive blooms, but they only make it for a day or 2 before wilting back and falling to the ground. The only good thing is that new and fresh blooms keep appearing almost everyday to replace the dropped blooms. The one impressive thing is that the blooms are magnificent sized and bright red.

Marvelous Surprise

A viewer from Mission, Kansas

This plant was a marvelous surprise. I didn't expect it to bloom the first year. It started blooming end of June and bloomed non-stop thru mid-August. Gorgeous deep red blooms....can't wait til next summer.

Midnight Marvel Hardy Hibiscus

A viewer from Tennessee

This is such a beautiful plant, and the flowers are impressive. The problem is the flower only last one day and then dies and falls off the plant. I've never had one of these plants before so I don't know if that is normal. I was hoping that it would be full of big beautiful blooms. But that is not the case, and I'm disappointed. Debating on returning it, and getting something that will last more than 12 hours, then dies out.

Breathtaking Blooms

A viewer from Huntington, IN, USA

This plant blooms around the first part of June with gorgeous, large leather-like flowers. Deep Red and shiny. I have mine on a steep hillside and it keeps coming back year after year! I Love it!

Latin Name Pronunciation: hye-bis'kus  

Hibiscus is a huge genus of more than 200 species which includes a diverse bunch of annuals, perennials, and shrubs, both tender and hardy.

Rose of Sharon

A shrub valued for its late summer bloom. It enjoys full sun and average garden soil that drains well. Space 4–8′ apart, depending on the variety. Prune in early spring. It may take two or three years to begin flowering. Medium growth rate of 12–24″ yearly, depending on growing conditions.

Swamp-rose Mallow (Rose Mallow)

A hardy perennial plant growing to 3–4′. It wants full sun and evenly moist, organically rich soil. Space 2–3′ apart. It is one of the latest plants to break dormancy in spring, often not appearing until late May or early June, so be sure to mark its location carefully to avoid disturbing it before it begins to grow. Stems may be cut down to ground level either in fall, or in early spring.

Tropical Hibiscus

Grow in full sun for best foliage color; plants may require staking if grown in partial shade, and their color will be less vibrant. (Plants grow best in the partial shade in the West.) Plant in moist but well drained soil. Pinch plants to encourage them to be bushy and more compact. Feed every 2 weeks with a water soluble, 15-30-15 fertilizer, which is formulated specifically for annuals. Hardy to Zone 10 (30°F) but not long lived. Plants can be overwintered indoors in a sunny, south-facing window.
