This hibiscus makes a gorgeous, huge flower on a bush that is always attractive. The leaves are dark green and spaced closely together so the stems don't look leggy. It prefers to bloom when daytime highs are below 90 degrees. I live in New Orleans so that means it blooms best in the spring and fall. If we get a bad enough freeze it will die on top but has always returned from the roots quickly enough to bloom again the next spring. I have grown other hibiscus but this one is my all-time favorite.
