I love hardy hibiscus. I wish I had more room and more sun in my garden so I could grow all the different varieties of them. This one here is Hibiscus Kopper King. When planing hibiscus put them in a very sunny location. They will come up very late in spring, but are fast to grow once they actually start growing. So if you think it's not coming back in spring wait a month and you will probably be pleasantly surprised.
