HIBISCUS 'Red Shield
ANNUAL in all cold zones up to 8; Perennial in Zone 8-10 (Sun) Height: up to 5 feet in one season in cold zones
If you can't wait for a Japanese Maple to supply you with the wonderful red foliage contrast in your gardens, you MUST get the Hibiscus 'Red Shield'. The leaves are almost identical to a Red Japanese Maple only this plant will not survive cold winters in zones below 8. HOWEVER, you can overwinter it indoors in a southern-facing window. Make sure you don't give it too much water in the winter though! Outdoors in the spring after all risk of frost has past, bring outdoors in a sunny location and be rewarded with gorgeous large funnel-shaped burgundy flowers!
