Kopper King

One of the new plants I bought this spring was Hibiscus 'Kopper King'. I thought its coppery red foliage would look great at the end of my "prairie" bed, where the 'Grosso' lavender used to be.


It's just a small thing right now, only 2' (60cm) tall with a single stem, but it's huge blooms are still quite impressive. (I swear I got this for the foliage!)

It's reportedly deer resistant, and does quite well in average garden soils, but it's not supposed to do well in dry ground -- regular deep waterings are recommended. So I guess I'll have to treat it like the native rose mallow that I grow, giving it a drink once in a while.

I'm looking forward to see what this will contribute to the garden next year, but I'm already happy with what I can see of it.









My posts over the next couple of days might be unpredictable, but next week you're going to see so much great stuff -- I promise!
