Design IdeasNo other flower offers such a luscious range of colors in a single blossom. Don't lose this Hibiscus in far-away plantings. Instead, place it next to patios, entries and in courtyards, where its beauty can be accentuated with cool purple, blue and white hues. Its glossy foliage is dense and makes a solid hedge or screen. Plant as a specimen to highlight entries or gateways. A good cover for bare walls and spaces between windows. Most charming when trained into a patio tree and planted in large pots stuffed with annual color.
Care Information
