"This is a hardy Hibiscus in zpne 7b.
It grew to over 3 feet the first year. Yhe very large billiant red flowers open only for about a day. They are very showy. The plant does not seem to need staking and has delicate looking foliage that doesn\'t seem to be bothered by bugs. Mine is growing in some very poor clay soil.
