Product Details

A magnificent Hibiscus variety, 'Starry Starry Night' 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. 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.

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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the 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. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Melodramatic

They did not do great the first year, but the second year has been amazing. They started blooming at the end of August, and truly melodramatic in shading and size. I might need to buy more of these.

Foilage is disappointing

I’ve had this hibiscus for a few summers now and it has never had the dark purplish foliage, it’s as green as can be. The flowers are pretty as advertised, but I bought it for the foliage.
Response from White Flower Farm — 8 months ago (08/25/23 09:07AM)

Thank you for your review. We apologize that the foliage is not as advertised, it appears that we accidently shipped the wrong hibiscus to you. I sincerely apologize for the error and will reach out via email to see if you'd like a future replacement or refund.

BUY THESE!!!

This is my first purchase from this website. I ordered late march and received a bare root mid april and planted it. It grew steadily since planting, but I did not expect it to bloom this year. It is now end of July and I've had 2 huge, STUNNING blooms the size of a plate. SO thrilled.

Show stopping blooms!!!

Planted as a bare root in the Fall of 2021, The hibiscus is stunning. I would post a picture but I don't see that option. I would highly recommend.

Never Came Up

Purchased this item this spring. Planted according to the instructions, mulched, and watered. It is now late June. Red hibiscus I had previously about 3 feet over is up, tall, and ready to flower. This one still has not come up and, I assume it is dead.

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.
