Hibiscus 'Midnight Marvel'
Hibiscus 'Midnight Marvel' (PPAF) is a spectacular hybrid with dark purple tinted, maple-like foliage that is covered with 8 to 9" scarlet red flowers from late summer into fall. It grows about 4' tall and wide and will have the darkest foliage color with lots of sunlight.
While many perennial Hibiscus flower only at the end of the branches, Hibiscus 'Midnight Marvel' flowers at each of the leaf nodes, producing a full, long flowering, shrub-like mound in the perennial garden. It is a hybrid of Hibiscus 'Cranberry Crush' PP#21984 x Hibiscus 'Summer Storm' PP#20443 that is similar in appearance to Hibiscus 'Fireball' PP#13631 but with more flowers over time.
