Oh my...a variegated, winter-hardy native hibiscus...heart stand still! I'll never forget when I first saw this amazing plant during a trip to Michigan's Walters Gardens. This Hans Hansen creation was something even I couldn't imagine. The narrowly upright 3.5' tall x 5' wide clump of Hibiscus 'Summer Carnival' is clothed in tripartite green leaves, each edged with an irregular, narrow band white. Even the flower buds are striped white and green, before opening into 8" wide cherry red flowers. In climates with cooler nights, the variegated foliage picks up an incredible red flush. As with all native hibiscus, Hibiscus 'Summer Carnival' can be grown as a marginal aquatic or in all but the driest of garden soils.
