Hibiscus are normally known for their lovely, late-season blooms, and Summer Carnival's are no exception. However, even when it's not in bloom, this cultivar is still impressive. It has variegated foliage, which is unusual on hibiscus, and even more so on winter-hardy native hibiscus. There's a slight pink touch to its leaves, which complements the flower color nicely. In colder climates or with cooler nights, the pink tone is even more noticeable. This hibiscus adapts easily to many soil types, except especially dry soils. Deer generally don't bother it either, but butterflies adore the blooms. It is a Hibiscus mosecheutos, a herbaceous variety, so it'll die back to the ground in winter and grow new in spring. It takes time to break dormancy, but with a little patience, you'll have a jaw-dropping feature. This is a very new cultivar, and although we're proud to be one of the few able to offer it to the American home gardener, our quantities are limited. Hibiscus moscheutos 'Summer Carnival' PPAF
