Large blooms in deep burgundy-maroon, almost black color appear in late summer to add more pizzazz in the perennial garden. Blooms are 10 inches wide, glossy with black center, veined, with bright yellow pollen for contrast. Plants are 4 feet high and 6 feet wide, with mid green hydrangea like leaves. Round habit, well branched and covered with blooms. Hibiscus needs good soil drainage and plenty of sun; we like to use them as a hedge or tall focal point in the back of perennial bed.
