I purchased 2 of these Candy Cush hibiscus and they arrived in the mail small but in perfect condition. I planted them right away and now they have put on a lot of growth and a lot of buds . The blooms are big and gorgeous but only last until noon which is so disappointing to me. I don’t know if it is this variety of hibiscus or the Oklahoma heat. I wanted to get more of these because the holy grail and the summer in paradise is gorgeous but now I’m afraid they won’t do well for me.Jessica Medina, Oklahoma, United States, 17 weeks ago
Beautiful bloom, beautiful color with black center, large, exciting: I will order more next year. Planted last year in July, did not bloom. Several stems were left after winter. In Early Spring started growing, beautiful green leaves. It was a foot high covered with leaves. At the top were a group of buds that started to open two at a time., added more on sides. Bloomed & bloomed and grew another foot, narrow plant. Rested a short while and has put on blooms all over. Much prettier than the picture.. I am going to order several small lavenders.next year..Dorothy Joan Ford, Texas, United States, 18 weeks ago
