Hibiscus 'Summer Storm' is a superb dark-foliaged hibiscus hybrid from the breeders at Walters Gardens. Building on the work of the late Fleming Brothers, Hibiscus 'Summer Storm' produces 7' tall stalks clothed with deeply-lobed, dark purple leaves and is adorned from July until September with both axillary- and terminally-produced, 10" wide, medium pink flowers, highlighted with a dark red center and bloodshot-eye-like red veins...a hummingbird favorite. Moist soils are ideal, but this is amazingly drought-tolerant in the short term.
