|Botanical Pronunciation||hi-BIS-kus ROH-zuh si-NEN-sis|
|Lore||It was French impressionist painter Paul Gauguin who so often depicted this flower in Tahitian scenes.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate growing; reaches 6 to 8 ft. tall, 5 to 6 ft. wide.|
|Bloom Time||Summer; nearly year-round in mild climates.|
|Design Ideas||Plant next to patios, entries and in courtyards, where its beauty can be accentuated with flowers beneath and vines overhead. With its glossy, dense foliage, this Hibiscus creates a solid hedge or screen. Plant as a specimen to highlight entries or gateways. Very good choice against hot colored plaster or stucco walls. A good cover for unsightly side yard fences and spaces between windows. Most charming when trained into a patio tree and planted in large pots stuffed with annual color.|
