    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, but is not necessary for continued bloom. 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 to 4-6 inches tall before new growth appears. Do not trim back in fall. 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. Be patient, even if you think it is dead, it most likely isn't. Its vigorous growth rate more than makes up for this late start, however. Japanese beetles find these plants especially delicious.

    'Cherry Choco Latte' is a brand new, long blooming Hibiscus with a smaller size that is more suitable for tighter spaces. Very large, 8-9" three-dimensional flowers are white with intense deep pink veining and a notably large red eye. Attractive dark olive green foliage has bronze highlights and forms a compact clump, with flowers covering the entire habit later in the season. 'Cherry Choco Latte' replaces 'Cherry Cheesecake' in the Proven Winners® lineup with larger flowers and improved flower form, more pronounced veining on the petals, darker foliage, and an improved, compact habit.

    • Wow, these Cherry Choco Latte blooms are HUGE! What a show! They just started blooming here in the southeastern Michigan on July 21. I bought the gallon size and they were planted in late May I think. Although I did nothing for them (no watering or fertilizer) it rained a lot so they grew faster than expected, about 3 1/2 feet already with many buds. Highly recommend. Bought them to partially block the ugly chain link fence without being too much taller than the fence.
