Design IdeasDon't lose this Hibiscus in far-away plantings. Instead, place it next to patios, entries and in courtyards, where it will be a brilliant focal point. Use along paths for a strikingly colored allee. Its dense and glossy foliage makes a solid hedge or screen. A good cover for bare walls and spaces between windows. Charming when trained into a patio tree and planted in large pots stuffed with annual color.
