These hardy hibiscus are the superstars of the late summer garden. Starting in late July, they produce huge, showy blooms into the fall season. They thrive in heavy wet soils, but also do well in average soils. They are best grown in full sun, and some extra watering is appreciated during dry spells. They die down completely in the winter, and are slow to emerge in the spring. Many gardeners will assume that they are dead, but give them time, and the first new shoots will emerge eventually in May.
