Blooms the Size of a Dinner Plate, Set off Perfectly by Deep Wine Foliage!
As big as 8 to 10 inches across, these blooms are impressive in size, even for a Rose of Sharon; in fact, they are among the largest flowers produced by any hardy perennial! Their velvety soft pink is accented by ruby red centers with thin veins extending out over the petals, and they positively glow against the rich wine-purple foliage.
One of the Longest Blooming of this Type of Hibiscus!
Summer Storm’s branches are indeterminate, which means that they keep growing and putting out flower buds, which in turn means that this baby has an extremely long bloom season. When well grown, you can have blooms over as much as three months, from midsummer through most of fall! And when the blooms are done, the fall foliage colors of orange and russet continue to add color and interest to your landscape. This is one great plant!
Very easy to grow! It thrives in heat and full sun, and will grow well in poor to average soil. It also tolerates both dry and moist conditions once established, though it prefers moist conditions. The first season, give it a soaking each week for the first month after planting. Even after it is established, it needs water during dry spells for best blooms and foliage. The foliage needs full sun to achieve its richest hues. Not bothered by deer. This deciduous perennial dies back to the ground each winter.
