Ive grown hardy hibiscus plants for a few years now. All PW plants. They are a show stopper for sure. They have tons of huge beautiful blooms and I hardly do anything but water them occasionally. My favourite plant in my garden in here Zone 5a. Ontario, Canada.

I purchased this plant from a local nursery. I transplanted it on a very hot day a couple weeks ago. The plant never missed a beat. Has blooms on it every day. I love this plant so much.Andrea, Colorado, United States, 1 year ago
I left a review last year giving this hibiscus only 2 stars but this year it is definitely a 5 star rating. This is a gorgeous hibiscus and the blooms are the most beautiful pink with the dark centered eye. I have tons of bumblebees in my yard and the blooms are lasting longer this year. I wish I could upload a picture of this beauty!Jessica Medina, Oklahoma, United States, 1 year ago
I bought my first candy crush this year. I have several other summerific varieties and this one takes the cake. (They are all beautiful but this one is phenomenal) These blooms are to die for. I wish I could add pictures to my review. It’s mid July and I have blooms that are 8 inches in diameter on the first season I’ve owned it. Will be adding more for next year.Mandie, Michigan, United States, 1 year ago
Beautiful bloom, beautiful color with black center, large, exciting: I will order more next year. Planted last year in July, did not bloom. Several stems were left after winter. In Early Spring started growing, beautiful green leaves. It was a foot high covered with leaves. At the top were a group of buds that started to open two at a time., added more on sides. Bloomed & bloomed and grew another foot, narrow plant. Rested a short while and has put on blooms all over. Much prettier than the picture.. I am going to order several small lavenders.next year..Dorothy Joan Ford, Texas, United States, 2 years ago
