So, we’re comfortable saying that most every tropical flowering plant you introduce to your garden is going to be beautiful. The bold colors, the tropical vibe… Fantastic, right?
But then there are those bloomers that are truly incredible.
The Summerific® “Holy Grail” Rose Mallow, a hibiscus hybrid, is one of them. It’s ah-mazing!
First, the dinner-plate size flowers are stunning not only because of their size, but also because of their rich, deep-red color.
But these blooms are almost upstaged by the dark purple, near-black foliage that frame those blooms, and will stop you in your tracks. Come see this showstopper at the Garden Market!
All this Proven Winner® hibiscus needs is a partly sunny or sunny spot. It’s in the “easy” maintenance category (we like that), is a fast grower, and blooms from mid summer to early fall.
Also, this perennial hibiscus is tall, growing to about 54 inches high, and spreads out to about 60 inches wide.
Planted singly or enmasse, it can be a brilliant focal point in your garden.
And unlike other plants that like to be planted in the spring, this hardy hibiscus can be planted in the summer when the red blooms are unfurling and the foliage is deepening in the summer sunshine.
One look and you’ll definitely feel as if you’ve found the “Holy Grail” of flowering plants. Come on in and get one. Or two. Or…
