With dramatic deep burgundy foliage that resembles Japanese maple leaves, this plant provides great height to garden borders and adds drama to large container plantings. Grown primarily for its striking, serrated foliage, hibiscus only flowers indoors in temperate regions. The more you cut this heat and drought tolerant plant, the more it produces.
