      Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
    • Excellent choice. very cold hardy, beautiful long lasting flowers, produces lots of seeds, best blue color of any of the strain. If you like Hibiscus, you should switch to Rose of Sharon ""Hibiscus syriacus." they are heat tolerant and cold tolerant down to -20 F. Hibiscus syriacus are florabunda in most cases, once they start blooming they keep going. One drawback to Hibiscus syriacus since the are florabunda, continuously blooming you get a lot of falling blooms. However, there is not many prettier flowers so prolific that you can enjoy in the south for so long of a season.

    • I planted an entire row of these, as they were advertised as good for a hedge and deer resistant. The deer ate them all down to a single bare twig. Pretty sure they are all dead.

      Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
    • This plant is beautiful. It had buds on it when I planted it and the plant started blooming. The flowers are gorgeous. HOWEVER, this plant is not deer resistant at all. Mine has been eaten down to the soil by deer. So now I've lost a shrub. Very disappointed about that.

      Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
    • I love this plant. I have it in blue and also in maroon. Its 5feet tall and has beautiful blue to purple flowers as they fade. I have several against the southern fence. I look foward to them blooming every year
