Design Ideas Hibiscus 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.

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 French impressionist painter Paul Gauguin made the hibiscus famous by often depicting this flower in Tahitian scenes.
