HIBISCUS 'Cinnamon Grappa'( CORDIAL SERIES) PPAF
Cinnamon Grappa Hibiscus, Hybrid Hardy Hibiscus
This hardy hibiscus, 'Cinnamon Grappa,' combines tropical showiness with tolerance for both hot and cold climates. It is an herbaceous perennial with upright, branching stems, large leaves, and a compact habit. It blooms in clusters of buds that open in succession from late summer until frost to plush red flowers the size of dinner plates that last for three to four days.
Plant hardy hibiscus in full sun and any fertile to average garden soil with average drainage and good moisture. Avoid highly alkaline and dry soils for best plant performance. After the first killing frost of fall, cut back its dead branches. The new stems are slow to emerge in spring, as they require warm soil and hot weather. In regions with milder winters this hibiscus may not die back completely to the ground. In this case, prune or repetitively pinch plants back to encourage new growth and more flowers. Japanese beetles love to eat hibiscus leaves, so plants should be protected from these summer pests.
This outstanding perennial adds nearly effortless tropical beauty to any sunny spot. It is excellent for large flower gardens and is amenable to container culture.
