Super dark red color on this hardy hibiscus makes it stand out from many feet away. And it doesn't require the TLC that tropicals hibiscus do. What's not to love about this low maint. plant. I don't know if it produces seeds, I sure hope so. Would love to have a big patch of this beauty growing in my garden.
