Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinenses)
Hibiscus are medium to large growing shrubs with very lush, dark foliage and beautiful flowers that come in a wide variety of colors. These beautiful flowering plants prefer to be planted in well-prepared garden soil that drains well and needs even moisture for their roots. Be careful though as heavy soil tends to suffocate them.
They grow great in partial sun and will acclimate to full sun easily. Fertilize monthly from March through September to encourage the best growth and a prolific blooming season.
Hibiscus are frost tender and should be protected during cold nights to prevent frost burning on their leaves. If a hard freeze occurs, younger plants could be killed without adequate protection. Plants recover from non-fatal damage very quickly in the spring.
