Hibiscus 'Midnight Marvel'
Hibiscus is the undeniable the queen of the mid-summer perennial garden! We've offered quite a few different varieties over the years and this is another knockout. Bred by Walter's Gardens, Midnight Marvel, inherits it's glossy purple foliage from the variety 'Perfect Storm' and it's scrumptious red blooms from 'Cranberry Crush'. This marriage has brought forth a free blooming perennial hibiscus with a stark foliage to bloom color contrast. A masterpiece for the mid-border. Midnight Marvel is ideally planted in groups of three, in flowing drifts, or as a stand alone specimen mingled with other summer blooming perennials like phlox.
