1. Perennial Hibiscus

If you’re looking to make a big statement this summer, look no further than a perennial hibiscus. Their blooms measure up to 1 foot wide, so it’s no surprise that their stems reach anywhere from 2 to 8 feet in height. All they ask for is regular sunlight and lots of water in return.
