This plant is so easy to grow from cuttings - we have four and I cut and root 20 or so every year for friends. You have to cut them before the leaves come out but after the buds are ready to open for best results. I just love this plant!

Plant is very easy to care for, very hardy and will provide a wealth of blooms if it's happy in it's location.

Flowers are very pretty but are small compared to the other hardy hibiscuses. I've found that they take a while to flower after being transplanted.

Very pretty pink-red flowered hardy hibiscus variety. This variety was produced on 1992 in Belgium. It is a crossing between Hibiscus 'Lilac Queen' & H. 'Ruby Glow'.

Flowers are about 10-13 cm in diameter. Not scented. Plant outside for summer if you live up North as me... Keep in cool place over winter.
