This was the first item I ordered from Spring Hill. It arrived in perfect condition as a bareroot tree with a root system that was massive. I have never purchased a bareroot plant that could compare to this. I planted it last year and it grew exceptional. The blossoms are a lovely double lavendar. It is getting leaves on it now and I am so excited to see how it looks now it is more established. I am ordering at least 2 more to plant this season.
This plant produces very attractive flowers. One of the best hibiscus out there.
