Huge, pure red blooms absolutely glow against the richest purple foliage in the genus. Since buds occur not just as at the tips, but all down the stems, blooms appear for a long period of time starting in midsummer. Neat and compact, this front of the border perennial doesn't need to be relegated to the back like other hibiscus might. Native to swampy areas, Midnight Marvel loves moist, rich soils, but adapts well to dryer, poor conditions. Leaves attain their most gorgeous wine-purple color when planted in full sun—an absolute show-stopper in the garden! Hibiscus 'Midnight Marvel' PP24079
