Tropical Hibiscus

Tropical Hibiscus are renown for their exceptional flower power and many will produce their large flowers year round under warm tropical growing conditions. There are literally thousands of Tropical Hibiscus cultivars on the market today and not all of them are created equal. We have selected the ones that we believe do best as container plants or as landscape and garden specimens where winters are reliably mild. Thee easy to grow, generally evergreen, Tropical Hibiscus can easily be grown as container specimens and overwintered in a warm protected and sunny location. The large showy flowers attract a variety of pollinators including hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, and other garden beneficials. These are heavy feeders and need ample nutrients to continue to grow and produce new flower buds throughout the flowering season. A non-burning, balanced, slow-release fertilizer can provide nutrients each time it rains or each time you water providing optimum growing conditions. Enjoy!
