This isn’t one of those tender hibiscus that only last one season, nope, these are the hardy, perennial hibiscus. Got a sun to part sun area that needs color? Mars Madness will grow beautiful in that area. Butterflies and bees love the nectar the flowers give them. Grows great in the ground or in large containers.
