Hibiscus Dark Mystery

Hibiscus Dark Mystery

Welcome this landscape performer into your seasonal lineup! Dark Mystery Hibiscus reliably produces rich, wine-purple foliage that nearly steals the show from the plant's 8-9" white blooms with cherry-red eyes and deep pink veining. Instead the dramatically dark leaves serve as a contrasting backdrop that is anything but subtle. Butterflies will be frequent visitors year after year as Dark Mystery matures. With a rounded plant form and its striking coloration, this amazing hibiscus looks good wherever it is placed. But we like it as a border anchor, in large containers or as a focal point planting.
