A spectacular dwarf hibiscus shrub?

rouge21_gw(5)September 18, 2011

I don't know nearly enough re things hibiscus. Our only one (Rose of Sharon) is a 3 year old "Lucy" which does a great job of flowering in a quite shady location.

This past weekend I made a small addition (only about 25 to 30 sq feet and not rectangular) to our larger more established garden.

I know it is a small area but instead of planting more perennials I wanted to put in a something different. So I was thinking that there might be a dwarf hibiscus that would be appropriate. Are there any outstanding choices in this regard that I should consider?

Thanks for your advice and experience.

Best guess, buy a regular shrub and keep it pruned. I have a double red that never got over 2 feet tall, next to a double purple that is 6 feet tall. I love the double flowered ones due to them deadheading themselves and flowering longer. Also no weedy seedlings poping up.
