Add sophistication to your summer garden with this showstopper. This Rose Mallow has it all: giant crepe-papery blooms and adaptability to most soils. Emerging from soft yellow buds, the 7-8-inch ruffled flowers are a creamy yellow that become whiter with the summer heat. Each has a dazzling red center. Enhanced by deep green foliage and red stems, the flowers bloom from midsummer to early fall and are the plant’s claim to fame. This hybrid Hibiscus grows to a height of 42-48 inches.

It is a North American native with a compact, graceful, rounded habit. Deer hate it; bees and hummingbirds love it. Use it in the landscape or border as a specimen or focal point. It is equally at home in a cottage garden and in a rain garden.

Summerific® French Vanilla Hibiscus Care

Plant this easy Hibiscus in well-drained soil – when established it can tolerate a wide range of soils from dry to boggy. Amend the soil with organic matter. It has average to high watering requirements. Fertilize in early spring with a granular rose fertilizer. You can plant this sun-lover in part sun to sun. It prefers acidic soil with a pH of less than 7, so you may need to add acidity with peat moss.

Even though they have woody stems, Rose Mallows (unlike Rose of Sharon) die back to the ground each winter because they are herbaceous perennials. They are late to emerge in the spring, but once they do, they are very fast growing. They need no special treatment or winter care; just cut off the stems once they go dormant. You may add mulch for winter protection if you wish.

Summerific® French Vanilla Hibiscus Spacing

Space them 42-48 inches apart. Consider planting them at the back of the flower border with summer annuals and perennials in front – try zinnias, daylilies, and celosias.

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.
