The Lilac Crush Hibiscus features 7-8” blooms of lavender blue, with the blue being more prominent in cooler temperatures. It is a nice contrast to the rich green foliage. Late to emerge in spring, pinching back the plant in June can encourage a bushier habit and more blooms. This pinching is not required. Cut back the previous year’s growth to inches above the ground in early spring. This nativar is a water loving plant, great in low spots and wet areas.
