Hibiscus 'Summer Carnival' | Rose Mallow, Hardy Hibiscus
7" deep magenta, tropical like flowers on variegated foliage. Green leaves are edged in a narrow band of white with hints of pink; even the buds are interestingly striped green and white. Durable and hardy with a compact habit.
Hardy Hibiscus form large bushy plants. They bloom mid to late summer producing absolutely huge, glorious crepe paper-like flowers. They grow best in full sun and moist soil. Hibiscus are very late to break dormancy and need temperatures above 50F before growth will appear. Place in a greenhouse or have your plants shipped later in the season when temperatures are warmer to ensure good growth.
