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.
