Hibiscus Summer Storm
Purple Plant Produces Plethora of Pink
Hibiscus Summer Storm (Rose Mellow), Hibiscus moscheutos 'Summer Storm', is continuously smothered with spectacular 10" wide, medium pink to rose-colored flowers, along with deeply-lobed luscious dark purple leaves. Each flower has dark pink veining and a magenta eye that radiates through the petals!
‘Summer Storm’ puts on a fabulous show from midsummer to fall. Moist soils are ideal, but this hibiscus is quite drought-tolerant. All summer long you'll enjoy hundreds of these exotic flowers, along with the many butterflies, bees and hummingbirds that this plant attracts.
This hardy hibiscus will die back to the ground every winter and emerge from the ground in the middle to late spring season; cut back to 4-6" from the ground in the spring.
It is root hardy and needs no protection. Remove old canes to the ground in mid winter.
Use ‘Summer Storm’ as an accent plant, landscape specimen, in mass plantings or rock gardens.
It grows well in any fertile, well-drained soil with ample moisture. Do not allow to dry to the wilting point. Be careful not to over-water until plants show signs of growth.
Be patient, hibiscus can be slow to emerge in spring. For best performance, plant in full sun in moist soil before the heat of the summer.
This hibiscus is suitable for very large containers, but pots must be protected over winter. ‘Summer Storm’ hibiscus needs little care once established, attracts butterflies, and it has some of the largest flowers of any perennial!
