- Produces large, single blue flowers adorned with lacy centers that look like anemones
- Refined, rounded habit has soft, elegant stems
- Great as a dramatic summer hedge or accent plant
- Looks beautiful paired with Day Lilies, tall garden Phlox and grasses
- Attracts birds, butterflies, hummingbirds and bees
- Grows best in full sun in moist, well-drained soil
- Work the soil into a good loose condition and dig a hole 12" to 15" deep. In the hole, incorporate a mixture of good garden soil, compost, peat moss, sand or well-rotted manure (whatever is available for a good loose growing medium).
- Remove plant from pot and plant level with soil. Your plant should not be placed deeper than where the foliage and root join.
- Fill hole, firm soil and water well. Make sure there are no air pockets.
- You plant should be spaced 3' to 4' on each side or planted as a feature plant.
- Cover with mulch to control weeds and retain moisture. Do not mound the mulch on the trunk.
- If you cannot plant immediately after receiving, place your plant in cool location. This will keep it safe for a few days.
- During the spring months there is usually enough moisture in the ground for hibiscus plants, but if several weeks pass without rain, give them a good watering once a week. This should also be done during the dry summer months.
- Established plants do not require as much watering except during dry spells and the hot summer months.
- Fertilize in early spring.
- May be trained into a tree form.
- A light covering of mulch is recommended, with heavier mulching in northern regions.
- If needed, prune in later winter and early spring, thought not necessary.

Thank you so much for this beautiful plant. My first flower opened today and I find it jawdropping. Living in Florida I see many hibiscus but none this color. Had to have it. My only complaint was the price point but honestly I would buy it again.florida63, FL
