This exciting new plant is a real show-stopper with its huge 8-9" flowers of pure red that absolutely glow against the richest purple foliage in the genus. Since buds occur not just at the stem tips but all down the stems, the flowers open over an unusually long time, starting in midsummer and not quitting until well into fall.

Neat and compact, it tops out at about 4' tall and 4 1/2' wide, so it doesn't have to be relegated to the back of the border as older, bigger varieties did. Being native to swampy areas, it loves moist, rich soils, but adapts well to dryer, poorer conditions, though it blooms best if watered during drought. The leaves attain best color in full sun, so pick a sunny spot for your plant. In late fall when stems have turned brown, cut them back to 6" and mulch for the winter, especially in zone 4. Zones 4 (with protection)-9. Bareroot. Hibiscus 'Midnight Marvel' PPAF. Full Sun.

Deer tend to avoid.
  • Zone 4-9

    ordered two and they arrived a little earlier than expected. Planted them in a 5 gallon bucket and placed them in the sunroom. When the soil warmed a bit out they went. Doing very well, about 18" tall, very bushy and lots of flowers.


    wonderful

    So I ordered 2 Midnight Marvels in Feb, Received in April, and has been in the ground since. I take great care to keep the soil watered. Its now 100+ degrees daily in Mid July and still not a sprout. I know these are late sprouters, but Summer is half over. Extremely disappointed as this was to be the centerpiece of my garden and instead I have a blank spot in my landscaping.
