Jazzberry Jam Rose Mallow

Blooms reach 9 inches and counting!

Half the size of most others, but just as flower packed!

Plant Patent Applied For.

This new Hibiscus has so many merits, it's tempting just to say, "You must try it!" For one, it's a full zone cold hardier than all others, surviving in zone 4 without a hitch. For another, it's half the size of most others, just 4 to 5 feet tall and wide. For yet another, its ruffled magenta blooms reach 9 inches or more across -- some of the largest and most beautiful in the family! What's not to love about American-bred 'Jazzberry Jam'?!

Without a doubt the cold-hardiest Hibiscus yet, 'Jazzberry Jam' brings the joy of this tropical-looking shrub into the far north! From midsummer into autumn, it sets masses upon masses of giant blooms. The growing and flowering season may be a bit shorter in the colder climates, but these blooms are large, profuse, and showstopping in any setting, and 'Jazzberry Jam' is certain to become the focal point of the sunny garden!

At just 4 to 5 feet high and 5 feet wide, it's also one of the most compact Hibiscus we've ever grown. You can put it into a large container and move it from patio to poolside to front yard, as you please. It won't take over smaller-space gardens, and can become the center of accent plantings in not much space at all. What a nice way to squeeze an over-the-top beauty into a tight spot!

Best of all are the blooms, though. A blinding shade of magenta, they offer oversized petals with neat ruffles around the edges and the fascinating crepe-papery look beloved of Hibiscus. We give their diameter as 9 inches to be conservative -- you'll find some foot-wide blooms before the first few seasons are out, and the flowers only improve in number and size as the shrub matures!

Tolerant of heat and humidity, attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies, and disdained by nibbling deer, Hibiscus is a must-have for the sun-soaked garden. It needs moisture to flower its best, but beyond that is left alone by most pests and diseases, and asks for very little to put on a spectacle that lasts until frost in warmer climates. Simply prune it back to about 3 to 5 inches from the ground in late winter or early spring each year, and it will reward you with more branches and blooms than ever!

'Jazzberry Jam' is a garden-maker, a touchstone shrub that will define a look for your landscape. Please order it promptly this season to avoid disappointment. Zones 4-9.

My first Hibiscus - WOW!!!
Leslie Morantine from LA wrote (August 05, 2014):
I've never grown hibiscus, much less from bare root. I just got my 2nd flower open today and it is an amazing shade of raspberry. Photos don't do it justice. I have babied this in a large pot on my patio and only cut it back once when it seemed like it would never stop growing in height in late spring. I was so excited to see the first bud of about 22 start to open showing a deep rich raspberry color. It has been fun growing this and quite a learning experience. The bare root took off like wildfire once I planted it on arrival. It's an amazing plant. It went from large bud with the deepest raspberry color peeking out to a drop-dead gorgeous open flower. Can't help but say WOW!

I give this plant high marks. I purchased and planted this Hibiscus last fall and was concerned that it wouldn't survive our harsh winter. It is now the middle of July and the Hibiscus is 4' high, and covered with buds that are beginning to bloom. The photos of the blooms don't do them justice. They are much brighter and vibrant than depicted. This plant does exactly as advertised.
