Enjoy bold color and a tropical vibe when you plant the Summer Carnival Hibiscus. The large flowers are a deep and enticing red. The petals have a crinkled appearance, almost like crepe paper. Expect flowers from mid-summer into fall. The flowers fade after a few days, but this plant is a prolific bloomer. The lovely flowers will grab your attention, but the foliage adds a lot of visual interest. The dark green, deeply lobed leaves feature cream-colored edging with hints of pink.

Plant this Hibiscus in a bed, border, or mixed flowering hedge. This plant can easily be the focal point or included with other colorful plants to make a bold display. You won’t be the only one enamored with the flowers – bees and butterflies will frequent the blooms. Hibiscus is deer resistant, so this stunner will likely be left alone. This plant is generally low maintenance and grows as a perennial in zones 4 through 9.

Summer Carnival Hibiscus Care

This beauty likes lots of sun and water. Summer Carnival can live in partial sun but thrives in full sun. Be careful when watering because while this hibiscus likes a nice long drink, it does not like to be sitting in soggy soil. Plant it in rich, moist soil. Apply a slow-release fertilizer in the early spring and summer.

Wait for new growth to emerge before pruning. Trim back old branches to shape the plant. Create a bushier look by trimming branch tips in the early summer. In cold climates, apply a layer of mulch around the base of the plants for extra insulation.

Summer Carnival Hibiscus Spacing

The Summer Carnival Hibiscus has an upright growth habit and reaches 4 to 5 feet tall and 5 to 6 feet wide. Create a hedge by spacing plants 4 to 5 feet apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
