I purchased this plant from a local nursery. I transplanted it on a very hot day a couple weeks ago. The plant never missed a beat. Has blooms on it every day. I love this plant so much.

I left a review last year giving this hibiscus only 2 stars but this year it is definitely a 5 star rating. This is a gorgeous hibiscus and the blooms are the most beautiful pink with the dark centered eye. I have tons of bumblebees in my yard and the blooms are lasting longer this year. I wish I could upload a picture of this beauty!Jessica Medina, Oklahoma, United States, 4 weeks ago
I bought my first candy crush this year. I have several other summerific varieties and this one takes the cake. (They are all beautiful but this one is phenomenal) These blooms are to die for. I wish I could add pictures to my review. It’s mid July and I have blooms that are 8 inches in diameter on the first season I’ve owned it. Will be adding more for next year.Mandie, Michigan, United States, 6 weeks ago
I purchased this plant summer. It never came back this year. Very disappointed.Patricia Hurd, New Jersey, United States, 1 year ago
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, 1 year 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, 1 year ago
