'Lilac Crush' adds a new color to the SUMMERIFIC® Series and a rare color among Hardy Hibiscus! Lilac flowers open 7-8" wide with overlapping petals of a thick substance. The flowers will have cool tones under low temperature conditions. Similar to 'Candy Crush' and fellow newcomer 'Valentine's Crush', 'Lilac Crush' has an upright, columnar habit that is very sturdy and resists lodging. Maple-like leaves are a rich green. Although later to emerge than most perennials in spring, these are fast growing plants capable of adding an inch of new growth a day. Excellent at brightening up end of season gardens.

Growing & Maintenance Tips for Hibiscus SUMMERIFIC® 'Lilac Crush'

Hibiscus love the sun and need moist, well-drained soil. Keeping these plants watered will result in larger flowers and lush foliage. Deadheading will improve the appearance of the plant. Hibiscus should be heavily mulched the first winter. In spring, cut back any remaining stems before new growth appears. Hibiscus is always one of the last perennials to emerge in spring. Its vigorous growth rate more than makes up for this late start, however. Japanese beetles find these plants especially delicious.
