Hibiscus moscheutos 'RutHib2’


These burgundy-purple leaves and passionate pink flowers have many a gardener madly in love! If you’re already a fan of hibiscus in your garden, this will be a wild contrast in your landscaping endeavors. The green flower buds stand out against the leaves, giving you a clear view of what's to come, or what you have already enjoyed. This hardy hibiscus does well zones 5-9, and is a repeat bloomer that pleases during the summer months. Burgundy goes exceedingly well with yellows, so consider some out-of-the-box “evergold” evergreen pairings for some hearty contrast like a cyprus, or another deciduous grower like Double Play® Gold Spirea that has another pink shade of flowers.

The Head over Heels series has larger flowers.  They are perennial and can be trimmed to the ground after each season.

Growing up my grandmother has lots of Rose of Sharon as these were called back then. They were heavy in the seed category therefore spreading all over the yard. These new refined Rose of Sharon do not spread in the invasive way that old varieties did. Plus, the flowers are much prettier, longer lasting, and are re-blooming. I'm now using these plants in some of my landscapes for their summer blooms. Very nice!
