Tropical Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis)


Tropical Hibiscus

Hibiscus rosa-sinensis

It’s easy to see why people love Tropical Hibiscus, after all, these medium to large growing shrubs feature lush, dark green foliage and large, bright tropical flowers that come in variety of colors and add lots of colorful character to any landscape! Believed to be from tropical Asia, we love to plant Hibiscus rosa-sinensis as a beautiful privacy hedge or as an espalier, where they look amazing growing on walls! Feel free to plant them anywhere a tropical-looking flower is desired.

Tropical Hibiscus thrive with full direct sun exposure and love to grow in warm conditions. They have low to moderate watering needs and only need to be pruned if they get too large, though, pruning can slow down growth, so feel free to let it grow and bloom like crazy! They also look great and grow well in pots, especially when placed on decks, patios and balconies, where they are sure to add a dramatic show everyone will love! We recommend feeding them with our Moon Valley fertilizers to encourage the best growth and a prolific blooming season!
