Hibiscus

Without a doubt, this is one of the most popular tropical plants we have at Fairview! This stunning annual plant features huge blooms (4”-5”) in a number of hues like reds, pinks, whites, and yellows. They're also available with a wide variety of throat colors for a truly unique look. It is most commonly used in containers by itself, but you could also make a combination container that features this statement flower!

There is no limit to the number of design choices you have with this bright and sassy plant. Add to your garden, in a planter on your doorstep, around water or even among trees and shrubs–the hardy hibiscus attracts hummingbirds, butterflies, and neighbors!

Care Instructions:

The tropical hibiscus can be used inside or outside, as long as it gets enough sun. Hibiscus loves full sun but can take some shade. It will continue to bloom profusely as long as the temperatures remain 55 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.

If hibiscus is overwintered in a sunny spot indoors, make sure to prune it in early February before the buds appear. Doing so will help the hibiscus rejuvenate itself and bloom again in the spring.

Care Instructions:

The Hardy Hibiscus variety is an easy way to add flair to your garden. Each 6 to 12-inch wide flower lasts just one day, but the plant is covered with enough buds to give you constant color from midsummer to frost. 

For best performance, plant your hardy hibiscus in sun to part shade, in moist, well-drained soil. Fertilize after the plant is established and during the growing season. 

In areas with cold winters (zones 7 and colder), hardy hibiscus will die back to the ground. Cut the dead stems back in fall or spring. You can also make tall hibiscus shorter and bushy by cutting back by one-third to one-half in June. This will delay the start of flowering by a couple of weeks.
