Author: Greg Beautiful flowers. The plant is somewhat susceptible to wind damage. Strong gusty winds will break the large canes off at the base which is always disappointing. We grow several different varieties of hardy hibiscus and this is easily the largest flowered of the varieties we have.
Author: Chris To prevent wind damage (and prevent winter damage to the crowns) it is best to plant these with the crowns fairly deep. No crowns or roots should ever show. If the plant is already established you can cover the base with a few inches of soil and then a layer of mulch, otherwise I would recommend lifting and planting deeper.
Yes, we are now shipping for spring planting, and we couldn't be happier to finally be digging in the dirt again. Advance orders are shipping on schedule with orders going out each week on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. If your order is scheduled for a particular week it should go out on one of those days and arrive by the end of the week. We also ship on Saturdays which is our day to catch up on any orders where digging may have been an issue (we are dodging storms on occasion) or for shipping new orders for immediate shipping. Once your order ships you will receive an email with the tracking number so you can watch for its arrival. Orders are shipped by priority mail through the US Post office.

Sincerely yours, Chris Wilson and Brian Hall, Hallson Gardens
