'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.
These North American native plants bring massive, tropical-looking flowers all the way to zone 4. 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.
