Design IdeasPlant 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 cream-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.
