Maintenance Notes: 

Hibiscus love the sun and need moist, well-drained soil. Keeping these plants watered will result in larger flowers and lush foliage. Deadheading will improve the appearance of the plant.

It is best to plant Hibiscus in the garden before the heat of the summer arrives, and should be heavily mulched the first winter. In spring, cut back any remaining stems before new growth appears. A strong pair of loppers or a saw will be necessary to cut this plant back. 

Be advised that Hibiscus is always one of the last perennials to emerge in spring. Its vigorous growth rate more than makes up for this late start, however. Japanese beetles find these plants especially delicious.

  • Given this plant last summer, bloomed once and although it was watered regularly and was in the sun and partial shade
    Does not appear to have survived the winter , maybe does not survive this far north?
    Disappointed with this product.

    Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.

  • This is one amazingly beautiful plant! When anyone sees it, they can't believe that it is a hardy hibiscus that thrives in Minnesota over the winter! it looks tropical and produces so many blooms. It is a "must have" in my landscape!

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • Its one of the most beautiful bushes when in bloom. The blooms are so vibrant, also I find it very hardy.It reminds me of what I would imagine Hawaii looks in fullbloom.
