|Design Ideas||Smaller than most, this tropical Hibiscus is perfect for patios, courtyards and small city gardens. Accentuate its beauty with exotic foliage plants nearby and bright red and purple vines overhead. 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.|
|Companion Plants||This shorter Hibiscus is nicely accented with perennials such as the blue Lily of the Nile (Agapanthus africanus), Prairie Blue Eyes Daylily (Hemerocallis hybrids Prairie Blue Eyes) and dwarf shrubs like fragrant Tomlinson Natal Plum (Carissa macrocarpa 'Tomlinson') and the unique Cream De MintTM Dwarf Mock Orange (Pittosporum tobira 'Shima'). Also quite lovely with larger shrubs like Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow (Brunfelsia pauciflora 'Floribunda') and another fragrant choice, Everblooming Gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides 'Veitchii').|
|Care||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.|
|Lore||French Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin's visions of Tahiti often depicted this hibiscus and helped to make them far more famous garden plants around the world.|
