Flowers the size of dinner plates. Hardiness from Florida to Canada. Adaptability to a wide range of soils. Fast growth.It's a native. It's even resistant to deer. It's a plant gardeners love to grow because it's foolproof, tough as nails and reliable. In fact, this is the kind of plant that any budding gardener can grow successfully, giving them confidence to move on and try other species. Unlike its woodier relatives, hardy hibiscus is a herbaceous perennial producing multiple cane-like shoots that emerge in late spring, flower in summer and die back with autumn frost. Hardy hibiscus requires the long days of summer to initiate flowers. Buds form in leaf axils near branch tips and open into the exotic-looking flowers typical of hibiscus, each with five petals surrounding a prominent pistil. Flowers last just one day, but so many buds form that the plant appears perpetually in flower throughout summer and fall until frost. Easy to produce. Standard procedures will suffice, with only high light and high temperatures needed for fast growth. Long days are required for flower bud development. Hardy hibiscus is one of the most gratifying plants a gardener can grow. Few other perennials provide as much bang for the buck in terms of flower size, length of flowering and ease of care. Hardy hibiscus grows best with full sun in rich, moist soil but tolerates even the poorest, sandiest soil if mulched and watered once in a while. Flowering is promoted by plentiful rain and sunshine. No matter how much and how often you irrigate a landscape, nothing beats good rain when it comes to stimulating flowering.
