    • I purchased this plant summer. It never came back this year. Very disappointed.

    • 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.

    • 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..
