I like it! bought two on ebay as 4" plants this spring. They are close to 2 ft tall and have had a few blooms. Beautiful, big, all white, and delicate. I look forward to future years when it becomes a fuller plant. Mine are inground, 6-7 hrs of sun.
July 2008. My plants died to the ground but came back in early spring. Shrubs are presently about 4' x 4' and some of the flowers are about 9" in diameter. What a spectacular hardy hibiscus! I read it likes moist environment, but mine is not planted in a particularly wet area. This plant gets A+

When I bought this plant it was dying/liquidated for $3. Hardy hibiscus was unknown to me, all I know is the picture on the container looked beautiful - I put it on the ground beginning of Fall 2004. Summer 2005 I couldn't be outside in the garden - every single passerby wanted to know what it was. "never seen anything like it..." me neither. I had no choice in August to move it I saw that it could be divided - I divided it - I have 3 of them now, plus seeds for Summer 2006.
Even after division they were blooming and seeding.
I LOVE THIS PLANT.
