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 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.

CARE
Care Thrives in well-drained, enriched soils with neutral to slightly acidic pH. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply a general fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, prune annually after flowering.
HISTORY
Lore It was French impressionist painter Paul Gauguin who so often depicted this flower in Tahitian scenes.
