    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.

    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.

    Hope that helps!

    Been looking for these all summer and finally found them. Order two 12/1/17 and receive them 12/4/17 with fast delivery, pack perfectly with flower tags to match, and I will definably order again. I planted one today and the other will be planted this weekend. Have 12 different hibiscus in my yard and this makes the 13th. I'm looking forward to the 12" blooms. A few of my hibiscus have reach 9" but none are like the 12" Pink Elephant. Thank you very much Chris!

    I bought these plants last fall. Shipped as a really nice, green root ball which I planted into the ground. There is a line drawn in marker that shows the soil line so make sure it is buried to that line. It survived the harsh winter and began flowering in late July (zone 7). This plant is absolutely incredible and the flowers are as big as they say. Every gardener should have this plant.
