This plant is perfectly named. It is definitely the holy grail of hibiscus! Not only are the flowers themselves absolutely stunning, the leaves are equally striking. The flowers are a rich, deep red, and the leaves are a beautiful purple/dark green color - they complement each other so well! There have been at least 2-3 blooms a day since I planted it 2 weeks ago in mid-late August. It's definitely the show-stopper in my garden. I'll be on the lookout for more at my favorite nursery for sure!

First year gardener and this has outperformed everything! Definitely a show stopper! Absolutely beautiful. So many buds and the flowers are bigger than my head. Just curious if it produces seed pods? They start to turn tan colored then fall off.Ryan Rosenberg, Oklahoma, United States, 8 weeks ago
I was a little worried when I rec'd this plant, I ordered 2 & one of them was a little messed up in the shipping. I decided to plant it anyways. Boy am I glad I did. It has grown so big & I have lots of buds on it. Can't wait for them to bloom!!! So pleased with it that I just ordered 2 more.Bernadette Vanas, Maryland, United States, 1 year ago
