Plant Features

Robert Fleming Hardy Hibiscus Plant is named after one of the preeminent Rose Mallow hybridizers of the last century. All three brothers, not one of them above 5 feet 5 inches in height, were often compared to garden gnomes, as they all had a sunny disposition, a sense of humor and an amazingly green thumb. Their hibiscus cultivars are known for the brilliant reds that are so unique for non-tropical hibiscus plants and Robert Fleming is the reddest yet! Garden tested for 10 years, the hydrangea-like, dark green leaves support the truest and darkest red 10-inch flowers on a compact, hardy, salt-tolerant plant.  The Fleming Brothers definitely knew what they were doing!

Robert Fleming Hibiscus

I received a nice good size healthy plant. Plant is growing nicely and showed no shipping stress. Shipping was delayed a few times due to weather and GrowJoy stayed in contact with updates. I would not hesitate to buy from again. Very satisfied with everything from ordering to delivery.

Tall in the saddle

This came as just one branch, but it was well rooted and at least 8 inches tall. I could tell the top portion was new growth, so I was very happy.
