If anyone is looking for a Hibiscus with a great bush and blooms alot you should consider this one. I live in Ohio and it is non stop blooming and the best part is the bush is great and the flower is beautiful. Of course this has to be over wintered because Ohio doesn't have a tropical climate. It was purchased from http://www.triedandtruehibiscus.com
