Hibiscus – Edge of Night Rose Mallow
The Darkest Foliage of All Hibiscus
One of our most hotly anticipated additions to our perennial lineup in recent years, Edge of Night Rose Mallow, Hibiscus, brings the darkest foliage of all Hibiscus! At only 3-3½’ tall, the great compact habit makes it ideal for many uses. The massive 7-8″ bubblegum pink flowers have overlapping petals and darker pink veining for a dramatic 3D effect. Jet black foliage is the darkest we’ve seen on a Hibiscus. As an added bonus, once the flowers are finished, bright green calyxes (sepals of a flower, typically forming a whorl that encloses the petals and forms a layer around a flower in bud) contrasts dramatically with the dark foliage. A member of the outstanding Summerific series of Hibiscus.
Edge of Night Hibiscus matures to a spectacular mound that you’ll want to place in area that is easily viewed. Its masses of flowers continue all summer into fall. Use Edge of Night Hibiscus as a focal point in your sun garden, as a hedge, a stunning container specimen, or showy background plant. Perfect for a tropical garden effect, it’s looks just like its tropical cousin, yet the flowers are bigger and it comes back year after year.
Plant in full sun, at least 6 hours of sun a day, although with afternoon sun you can get away with a little less. Although drought tolerant they will perform best with consistent moisture. Hibiscus die back to the ground every year. Cut back dead wood in early spring. Hibiscus are one of the last perennials to emerge in spring, sometimes not until mid to late spring. They grow quickly though, catching up fast to other perennials.
