Hibiscus var. 'Cranberry Crush' PP21984 CPBR4254 SUMMERIFIC® Collection

Common Name: Rose Mallow

You will love the short but full, compact habit and scarlet red flowers of this new Hibiscus selection from the Walters Gardens, Inc. hybridizing program. It represents a breakthrough in WGI Hibiscus hybridizing and an improvement over older cultivars with its pristine habit and substantial flowering ability over a long bloom period.

Since it is an indeterminate bloomer, the flowers are produced at the nodes all up the flowering stems rather than just at the top like some other cultivars. Near-black buds open to glossy, deep scarlet red, 7-8 inch wide flowers with heavily overlapping petals. These dramatic blossoms cover the plant from mid or late summer to early fall. They are set against a perfect backdrop of glossy deep green, leathery, maple-like leaves with slight purple overtones.
