Russian Hibiscus

Kitaibela vitifolia

Kitaibela

Kitaibela vitifolia full sun  partial shade

Hailing from Yugoslavia, this fast growing perennial is named to honor the famous Hungarian botanist Paul Kitaibel, who was born in 1757. Forging a stately presence with its great clump of tall stems, Kitaibela vitifolia’s very pointed, Maple-shaped dark verdure is a lush backdrop for its large white to tender pink, up-tilted, Mallow-like blooms.

Ideal at the back of the border in somewhat moist, but well drained soil, let Russian Hibiscus mingle with Centaurea ruthenica and Aconitum ‘Stainless Steel’ for an arresting array of foliage form and bloom color.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 5'–6' high x 3' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
