Plum Flambé is such an easy way to get some tropical flair into your garden. It's tidy and compact enough for containers and smaller borders. Yet, with huge, colorful blooms on such a small plant, it makes a big statement. You can put it in a patio pot to make your sitting area feel like an island escape. Plum Flambé is part of the Summer Spice® series of designer hardy hibiscuses. Petite habits, dark green, heavily incised leaves and brighter, bolder flowers than you'll usually find on hardy hibiscus make these easy modern accents. And you can easily grow these perennial shrubs all the way up through chilly zone 5. They adapt to many soil types and are heat tolerant. The flowers are loved by butterflies and other beneficial pollinators, but hungry deer rarely bother with this plant. Hibiscus x moscheutos '4385' PPAF
