Botanical Name: Hibiscus ‘Vintage Wine’ PP27839
Common Name: ‘Vintage Wine’ Hardy Hibiscus, Perennial Hibiscus, Rose Mallow
Description: Here’s another beautiful perennial hibiscus for your garden. Near-black buds open to huge 7”, scarlet red flowers that shimmer in the sun with a darker red eye. The overlapping petals of ‘Vintage Wine’ have a crinkled texture and open completely with minimal cupping. Flowers are produced from the top to the bottom of the plant, rather than only at the top like some older cultivars.
Dark green, heart-shaped leaves form a densely upright, columnar clump. Use this incredibly dense variety as a focal point in your sun garden.
These North American native plants bring massive, tropical-looking flowers all the way to zone 4. Although later to emerge than most perennials in spring, these are fast growing plants capable of adding an inch of new growth a day, growing to 4′ tall x 5′ wide.
Hardiness Zones 4 – 10
