Fireball

Fireball has the maple-shaped leaves that are a dark mix of purple and green.  I planted one Fireball last year and another this year.  Both of them began blooming on August 3, 2015.  My Fireballs are shrubs standing about 40″ tall and each bloom is about 10″ in diameter.

On August 3, Fireball began blooming Kopper King is almost  blooming.  You can see the dramatic effect created when the dark-leaved hibiscus are teamed with the Crippsii

For several years, I have had several Luna Whites.  They do not have the dramatic, dark maple leaf leaves, and their blooms are not as large as Fireball.
