Description / Hibiscus Lil Kim® Red

Just when you thought there was nothing new under the sun, along comes a dwarf rose of Sharon with a super long bloom time 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.

Customer Reviews

Review by creaky gardener
Took me awhile to plant until it was below 90degrees. But about two days after being in the ground it bloomed. Guess it's happy.
Nice plants
