Description

‘Sweet Caroline’ is a vigorous, sturdy, rounded, somewhat shrubby, woody-based hibiscus cultivar that typically grows to 4-5’ tall and features dinner plate-sized, 5-petaled, hollyhock-like flowers (to 6-8” diameter) which are among the largest flowers produced by any perennial which is hardy to Northern Ohio. Flowers are bright pink with darker veins and dark red eye zones. Overlapping flower petals are partly reflexed and slightly ruffled. Each flower has a prominent and showy creamy white to pale yellow central staminal column. Individual flowers last only one day, but one or more flowers usually open each day, in succession, over a long mid-summer to early fall bloom period.
