Make your neighbors envious with a statement plant like ‘Berry Awesome’ – a Hibiscus hardy to zone 4! This plant gets nicknamed “dinner plate Hibiscus” because the flowers on this plant are a huge 7-8” wide.
‘Berry Awesome’ has lavender pink flowers and red eye, with contrasting deep midnight green foliage. Flowers are produced from the top to the bottom of the plant, rather than just at the top like some other cultivars. The foliage forms the perfect habit and will be ready to show off from late summer into early fall. ‘Berry Awesome’ is the perfect backdrop or centerpiece for sunny borders. Use it in place of a shrub in your garden.
These North American native plants bring massive, tropical-looking flowers all the way to zone 4. Although later to emerge than most perennials in spring, these are fast growing plants capable of adding an inch of new growth a day. Excellent at brightening up end of season gardens.
