Its one of the most beautiful bushes when in bloom. The blooms are so vibrant, also I find it very hardy.It reminds me of what I would imagine Hawaii looks in fullbloom.
Summerific® 'Cherry Cheesecake' Rose Mallow Hibiscus hybrid
- Hardy Zones
- 4 - 9
- Part Sun to Sun
- Mature Size
- 48 - 60 Inches
This long blooming hardy Hibiscus produces very large 7-8”, white flowers with magenta tipped, ruffled petals and a magenta veining radiating out from the cherry red eye. It will be the star of your garden when in bloom! This plant forms a large, bushy, shrub-like clump of dark green foliage.
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.
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. 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. Its vigorous growth rate more than makes up for this late start, however. Japanese beetles find these plants especially delicious.
