Hibiscus 'Blackberry Merlot' x 3 bare roots
Hibiscus 'Blackberry Merlot' - This is huge credit to the team at Walters Gardens in Michigan. Their breeding work shows that anything is possible with effort, creativity, and knowledge. 'Lady Baltimore' was one of the early perennial hibiscus cultivars. The flower was pretty, but its growth habit was leggy and the flowers were few. The breeding of 'Blackberry Merlot' is fantastic. It takes the flower of 'Lady Baltimore' and makes it better. The habit is compact, the foliage dense and healthy, and the best yet, it is covered with flowers.
