You NEED Hardy Hibiscus to add the tropical look to your yard!
Hardy hibiscus are probably the best investment you can ever make to your tropical yard in a northern climate. They can survive in just about any climate the US has to offer. I've heard of people successfully growing them in zone 4 where temperatures can reach -30F every winter (unfathomable cold to me!). The flowers and foliage come in so many shapes and sizes. Some are very small shrubs, others can grow to be large trees. Mine range from 3 to 6 feet tall. Here are some photos of my hardy hibiscus. All these varieties are pretty easy to get!
