Hibiscus ‘Midnight Marvel’

Hardy Hibiscus

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.270.030

The hardy forms of Hibiscus are valued for their showy late-summer display of enormous satiny blooms. These flower best in areas with long, hot summers. Plants form upright, bushy mounds well suited to the back of a perennial border. This outstanding selection offers the best of its ‘parents’ – H. ‘Summer Storm’ and H. ‘Cranberry Crush’ with huge deep scarlet-red flowers, over a bushy clump of deep wine-purple foliage. Dies back completely to the ground in winter, but new growth is slow to appear in spring, be patient! Mulch well for the first winter, especially in Zones 4 and 5. A 2012 introduction by Walters Gardens, Michigan. Bred by Kevin Hurd. USPP#24079: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
