This 1997 Fleming hybrid makes a 3' tall deciduous clump of upright stems clothed in dark purple leaves. The clumps are adorned, starting in midsummer and continuing until early fall, with large, 8" fluorescent pink flowers, each with a contrasting red eye...sounds frighteningly like when I looked in the mirror after election night. Moist soils are best, but Hibiscus 'Royal Gems' is quite drought-tolerant.
