    Maintenance Notes: 

    Hibiscus love the sun and need moist, well-drained soil. Keeping these plants watered will result in larger flowers and lush foliage. Deadheading will improve the appearance of the plant, but is not necessary for continued bloom. It is best to plant Hibiscus in the garden before the heat of the summer arrives, and should be heavily mulched the first winter. In spring, cut back any remaining stems before new growth appears. Do not trim back in fall. A strong pair of loppers or a saw will be necessary to cut this plant back. Be advised that Hibiscus is always one of the last perennials to emerge in spring. Be patient, even if you think it is dead, it most likely isn't. Its vigorous growth rate more than makes up for this late start, however. Japanese beetles find these plants especially delicious.

    • Ive grown hardy hibiscus plants for a few years now. All PW plants. They are a show stopper for sure. They have tons of huge beautiful blooms and I hardly do anything but water them occasionally. My favourite plant in my garden in here Zone 5a. Ontario, Canada.

    • 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!

    • 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.

    • 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 year..
