Just when you thought there was nothing new under the sun, along comes a dwarf Rose of Sharon with a super long bloomtime and great adaptability. Just as robust as its larger cousins but a fraction of the size, Hibiscus Lil Kim® Red is a delight for containers, hedges, borders, and foundations.

From early summer all the way into fall, masses of 3-inch pink blooms arise, each with a dark red to magenta blotch at the center. Nicely ruffled, they are profuse all summer long and into autumn, stopped only by really chilly weather. You can't find a better "bloom machine" to show off along the driveway, on the south side of the house, or on the patio.

Just 3 to 5 feet tall and 2 to 4 feet wide, Hibiscus Lil Kim® Red is a fraction of the size of most other Rose of Sharons, yet is so well-branched and floriferous that Hibiscus Lil Kim® Red matches them easily in flower power. Impervious to heat, humidity, and drought, Hibiscus Lil Kim® Red also a good choice for urban streetside plantings, for it isn't bothered by pollution. And Hibiscus Lil Kim® Red even tolerates poor soil, provided it is moist.

Hibiscus Lil Kim® Red is a plant to show off in any sunny garden spot or fine container. Hibiscus Lil Kim® Red makes a fine poolside planting, a lovely specimen in a small space, and a border standout. Get creative with its tropical look and low-maintenance care this season.
