Design IdeasHibiscus is the most colorful and versatile shrub for frost-free zones because it blooms practically year-round. With its healthy, glossy foliage and large size, it's perfect as a background shrub, 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.

Companion PlantsPlant this Hibiscus for night gardens with other white flowers such as the highly fragrant First LoveTM Gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides 'Aimee'), African Iris (Moraea iridioides) and the crowning glory, White Bower Vine (Pandorea jasminoides 'Lady Di'). For more colorful accents look for Peruvian Lily (Alstroemeria-Hybrids), Sea Lavender (Limonium perezii) and Christine Bush Lantana (Lantana camara 'Christine'). Top it all off with a cool, white-flowering vine, Summer SnowTM Mandevilla (Mandevilla x amabilis 'Monte').

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
