Growing Instructions

Plant Hibiscus in the spring after all danger of frost has passed in a full sun location. Dig a hole approximately a 12" deep and a 12" wide. Place the plant in the hole and fill it half full with soil. Fill hole with water. After water has drained, fill the rest of the hole with the remaining soil. Water thoroughly again and continue doing so regularly. Fertilize at planting and then again each year after flowering.

Care Tip

Hibiscus blooms best in full sun. Little to no pruning will allow it to bloom profusely with smaller flowers, while heaving pruning will create larger but fewer flowers.
