    • 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.

    • 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.
