Need a gorgeous, long blooming, easy & fast shrub to fill in a large space? I’ve had this hibiscus in our gardens for 3 years & I am now probably its #1 fan! Fast growing to 5’ x 5’ in year one, it never shows any sign of chlorosis here in the fog-belt. Evergreen, lobed foliage, vigorous & super bloomiferous, the 4” cotton candy flowers appear on showy red stems JUNE - NOVEMBER! Prominent, velvety anthers & a deep cherry throat take its beauty to a whole ’nother level! Well drained soil with an annual boost of compost. I cut mine almost to the ground each Winter & it bounces right back. Hummers freak out! In its native, South American habitat, it’s found growing by stream banks, so do grow in rich soil with adequate moisture.
