Features

Stellar Summer hibiscus
  • "Airbrush Effect" variety bears vibrant pink blossoms with deep red eyes and white central halos that appear to have been airbrushed
  • "Mars Madness" variety stands out with magenta-red blossoms borne atop olive-green foliage
  • Bred to deliver intense bloom color, unique foliage and superior flower power
  • Each 7" to 8" blossom is intricately ruffled with a bright yellow stamen that stands out against its saturated petals
  • Sometimes referred to as "dinner plate hibiscus" because of the massive size of their blooms
  • Next-generation hybrids will be covered in flowers from the top to the bottom
  • Look great planted behind smaller plants such as coneflowers, Shasta daisies or SunPatiens
  • Ideal for planting behind spring-bloomers that die back in summer
  • Create a stunning effect when planted in large, decorative patio containers
  • Also beautiful when planted together as a hedge or individually as colorful focal points in the garden 
  • Suitable for areas with poor drainage such as low areas or planting sires near a downspout
  • Hardy enough to withstand frigid winters, yet tough enough to thrive in sweltering southern summers
  • Grow quickly, flower reliably and will even bloom this year
  • Since they're native to North America, they are well-adapted to the North American soil and climate and are easy to grow

Planting Instructions
  • Dig a hole twice as deep and twice as wide as each bare root division. Place a mound of soil in the bottom of each hole and carefully spread the dormant bare roots over the mound. Cover the roots completely with 1" to 2" of soil, firming the soil around the roots.
  • Water thoroughly. 

Continuing Care
  • Apply a 2" to 4" layer of shredded bark, compost, leaves, straw or other organic matter around your plants to promote moisture retention, maintain even soil temperatures and discourage weed growth. Replenish the mulch as needed.
  • Adequate and consistent watering is essential during your plant's first year in the garden. Infrequent, long soakings of water that thoroughly saturate the soil are more effective than frequent, light applications of water. 
  • Do not allow the soil or the original root ball to completely dry out. During the first summer, you may need to water as often as every few days in periods of drought and extreme summer heat. To determine if your plant needs water, dig a few inches into the soil next to the plant. If the soil is dry 2" to 3" below the surface, it is time to water.
  • Overwatering can be as damaging as under watering. Be sure that the area surrounding your plant has adequate drainage to move water away from the plant. If you choose to plant in a container, always select one with drainage holes to prevent your plant's roots from sitting in water.
  • Keep the area around your plants free of weeds. Weeds compete with surrounding plants for food, water and light. Walk around the garden periodically and pull weeds, including the roots, as soon as you see them.
  • Feed your plants once every 2 to 3 weeks during the growing season with a water-soluble fertilizer.

Winterizing Instructions
  • Watering thoroughly in late fall will greatly enhance your plant's cold tolerance once the ground has frozen.
  • Hardy hibiscus will benefit from mulching in very cold areas. The time to winterize your plants is in late fall. When winterizing perennials, keep in mind that the root system is the most vulnerable to cold damage. Mulch heavily by mounding a 6" to 8" layer of shredded bark, compost, leaves, straw or other organic material around the base of each plant.
  • In very cold areas, containerized plants can be brought into an unheated, protected area such as a garage or cellar before temperatures drop below freezing. Check soil moisture every 2 to 3 weeks and water as needed during winter.
  • In spring, remove mulch from in-ground plantings. Containerized plants should be moved back out into the garden sunlight where they will begin to repeat their yearly garden performance. Keep in mind that perennial hibiscus are one of the last plants to come out of dormancy each spring.
