BIG tropical color on a hardy perennial! Hardy hibiscus can sit alone as specimen plants, in rows as borders or create vertical drama in the back of a garden. They need full sun, bloom in midlate summer and appreciate a little applause. Young plants may require a little staking, but mature plants generally hold their own.
