Hibiscus 'Mars Madness' x 3 bare roots
High summer is one of the most interesting times of year in a garden. As many flowers start to fade in the heat, it's important to have flowers that are just hitting their peak. We also need flowers that can stand up to consistent 90-degree days. Also, perennial hibiscus need more exposure and love.
Hibiscus 'Mars Madness' - This is a perfect dark rich leaf, later bloom time, and perfect velvet red flower. The family of perennial hibiscus is confused with tropical hibiscus and rose of Sharon hibiscus. They are true vegetative perennials that die back to their base each year after hard frost events: think herbaceous peonies. Then when the ground warms in spring, they push out their new growth from that basal stem.
