Addendum to my last post: I should have mentioned how care-free and easy it is to grow hardy (perennial) hibiscus. (This is not a Tropical Hibiscus that would not survive the winters here) Hardy Hibiscus can be grown in zones 4 – 9 (-20 degrees F). I live in zone 6b. This plant simply comes back year after year with little attention. In the winter it dies back to the ground and I remove the dead branches. It emerges late in the spring just when you think you have lost it. Year after year of spectacular blooms! Clickfor more information on growing.
I purchased this white hibiscus last summer from Lowe’s. I had to enclose it with chicken wire because little bunnies had eaten a few stalks!
