Luna hibiscus comes in four colors and is a hardy hibiscus for Louisiana.

It was named a spring 2014 Louisiana Super Plant.

Planted in full sun, Luna hibiscus grows 3 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide. Spaced 2-3 feet apart, it can be planted from spring after danger of frost through midsummer. Flowers are large, 7- to 8-inch, eye-catching blooms beginning in late spring and continuing through September.

These plants grow in average soil and can tolerate poor drainage and even do well submerged along ponds edges and in water gardens.

Luna hibiscus attracts butterflies and works well in containers.
