Hibiscus 'Midnight Marvel'
Common name: Rose mallow 'Midnight Marvel'
In midsummer bold 8-9" red flowers emerge and contrast nicely with the dark foliage.
Blooms midsummer until early fall.
It is slow to emerge in spring so be patient. It may not pop out of the ground until June.
Pinch the shoots of young plants in early summer to encourage branching and more flower stalks to form.
Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Deer resistant.
Exposure: Full sun
