How to Use Hardy Hibiscus SUMMERIFIC® Cherry Choco Latte in the Landscape

These plants will be noticed in your late season landscape. Give them a position front and center, where you'll fully appreciate the massive pink-blend flowers. They are the size of dinner plates!

Use them in the front yard to turn heads and slow traffic down. Just get ready for questions and compliments.

Repeat their use in your mixed borders. They'll shine next to other flowering perennials like Black Eyed Susan, and Coneflower.

Use them as a cheeky contrast to blooming Mophead Hydrangeas. They both have gigantic blooms, but the colorway and styling is so different.

The unique coloration looks great at a distance. The brilliant pink petals with contrasting veining and a notably large red eye will stand out, even at a distance.

Commercial property owners, take note! This plant brings attention to your business. And their smaller size makes it easy to pop into large containers flanking either side of your front entrance.

Create a special display in late summer and early fall with several used as a "Thriller" role in the planting. Change out your faded early season display with a big pop of color to keep your location looking fresh.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Hibiscus love the sun, but this variety does take a bit of afternoon shade. For the most flowers, be sure to give them at least 4 hours of direct sunlight a day.

They do best in moist, well-drained soil. Keep them watered regularly. For best results, keeping container plants watered will result in serious, long-lasting flower power.

Try them near the edge of your Rain Garden. Cherry Choco Latte will do well in areas that remain wet periodically for short periods of time.

Mulch over the tops of the root systems to keep them nice and cool. Just don't let the mulch touch the stems, pull it back about 6 inches for proper air circulation.

After the flowers are finished, deadhead them to keep your plant trim and tidy. In early spring, trim back each of the woody stems right to the ground where all new stems will grow from the roots each spring. Do not trim them in the fall, but wait until spring.

Be patient in springtime, as Cherry Choco Latte is one of the last perennials to emerge from dormancy. Don't worry, it will bounce back with vigor quickly once it gets started again.

Life is short! Try these fabulous garden plants to accent your late summer scene. You'll relish in the tropical ambience from the lush foliage and enormous blooms. Order Cherry Choco Latte Hardy Hibiscus from the expert growers at Nature Hills today!
