Product Details

Product Details

This magnificent variety produces a mound of very dark foliage, which serves as a dramatic backdrop for its eye-catching blooms. The soft pink flowers are quite large, up to 8″ across, and have contrasting red eyes. Plant this hummingbird magnet in a special spot where you can appreciate the blossoms up close. Plants are deer resistant, too. PP 27,901

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.

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.


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. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


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.

Beautiful by the pool

I got this mid April as a bare root & was worried it wouldn't get going before the heat really started, but it was fine. When you get a bare-root plant, be aware that it looks just like a clump of roots with a very short stem on it. It is NOT a plant like you would buy at the garden center. Give it some water & a bit of fertilizer & it took off a month later, in full sun. The blooms are amazing & huge, at least 8" across! The bees love them. They do get a little droopy & sad without frequent watering in the heat, but they perk back up with more water. I bought 2 last year to see how they do, and I'll be buying more to put by my pool. Hopefully they grow back after the winter from the ground since my dogs decided to chew them.

I bought this bare root last spring and although I was skeptical I followed the instructions and after 5 weeks I saw tiny signs of life which quickly grew into one of the most attractive plants in my garden. The deep purple foliage really stands out against my white picket fence. And now it is covered in buds and blossoms the size of a dinner plate. I'm sure I will buy another as soon as I do some relocating of other perennials. BEAUTUFUL! EXCEPTIONAL!

I ordered my Starry Starry Night last winter and received it in the spring bare root. I followed the easy directions and planted it along my white picket fence. It took about 5 weeks before it sprouted but then it took off and I now have a beautifully shaped plant about 2.5ft. X 2.5 ft. Of deep purple foliage with dozens of flower buds. I can not wait for it to bloom. Trust me if you do as instructed you will be successful. I may even order another if I can decide where to plant it. THANK YOU Whiteflower Farm you never disappoint

happy with my Starry Starry Night

wish I could add a picture of this flower. received this plant as bare root, it arrived at the normal planting time for this area, but we had a late freeze, so I planted it in a pot for about a week. This was late April and now 2 months later I have beautiful blooms about the size of a dinner plant. Thank! Also, box it shipped in had been opened (I guess by postal inspectors) so the roots were not packaged as they had been at time of shipment. I was afraid that would damage the roots and they would not grow, but it didn't hurt them at all....

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.
