Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Molly Cummings'

Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Molly Cummings'
A large rich velvety 'dragon red' flower has given this Hibiscus world wide recognition since its introduction to the garden world in 1960 in the United States.
It grows as a fairly large leggy shrub but it can't be kept lower and more bushy if given an annual prune in spring. Grafted specimens of this variety are often available for gardens which have heavy soil which is less well drained or for climates outside the sub-tropics where winters are colder and wetter.
