    Why all the love for Summerific® Hibiscus?

    They are one of the most iconic landscape perennials with massive 8" wide flowers and head turning displays while in bloom. Not only are the flowers easy on the eye, but they are easy in the landscape as well. All these varieties need for success is a good supply of sun and water to achieve an impressive growth rate of an inch a day.

    Beyond their inherent beauty, North American gardeners can feel assured knowing they are planting a native perennial. Members of the Summerific® collection are all hybrids that can be traced back primarily to the species Hibiscus moscheutos. This species can be found growing naturally in wetlands and along riverbanks throughout the Midwest and East Coast, extending down even into Texas and Florida.
