Big Red Hibiscus

The large, saucer-shaped flowers of this excellent garden performer really pack a punch of color, style and beauty. Pollinators like butterflies, hummingbirds and beneficial bees are attracted to the bright red color and will become frequent visitors to your landscape. Looks amazing when used as a focal point planting or integrated into a mixed perennial border. Despite its exotic good looks, Big Red is easy to grow and maintain. Tolerant of many different soil types, so long as the drainage is good. Deer and other garden pests tend to avoid this fast-growing hibiscus variety. Plant in full sun to partial shade for best results. Hardy in Zones 4-9.
