Design IdeasHibiscus is good for foundation planting along buildings and fence lines. Accentuate with bold flowering plants and vines that add to the color range. With its dense, glossy foliage, this Hibiscus creates a solid hedge or screen. Plant as a specimen to highlight entries or gateways. Very good choice against plaster or stucco walls. Reliable 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.
