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. 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.


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.

Hibiscus failure to grow

A viewer from Mukilteo WA

Planted over a month ago and still no sign of life. As a Gardener of over 50 yrs. I believe I can safely pronounce this plant DOA. Sad to say. Will shop locally for a substitute.

I was skeptical about ordering bare root

A viewer from Tulsa, OK

I have ordered bare roots plants from other nurseries and they didn't grow. When I received the package (4/15) it had been opened, by postal inspector I suppose... Roots were packed in paper and it had dried out some. since we were due to have some late freezing weather I potted the plant and kept it inside. After about a week, I planted it in my flower bed and mulched it very well. Within the next few days we were to have another round of freezing weather and I covered it, hoping that would be enough. I am pleased to report that yesterday (5/2) I see it has gotten two sprouts coming up... So Far So Good. I like the way White Flower packages their plants for shipping...and I will be ordering again.

happy with my Starry Starry Night

Rose from OK

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.) Moist but well drained soil. Pinch plants to encourage them to be bushy and more compact. Hardy to Zone 10 (30°F) but not long lived. Plants can be overwintered indoors in a sunny, south-facing window.
