Meet Hibiscus ‘Mars Madness’ also known as Rose Mallow. This late blooming hibiscus is exactly what you need to extend your summer color and a great lead in for fall gardens. This fast growing perennial is hardy in Zones 4 thru 9 and a pollinator magnet with its 8” wide red blooms. These flowers provide a sharp contrast with the midnight green foliage. It can tolerate some shade, but like the lilies enjoys as much sun as it can get. Another noteworthy characteristic is its deer resistance. Special thanks to Dan, Claudia, and the whole 496 crew ensuring we have these fine specimens — we are anxiously awaiting their first blooms.
