About This Plant

Sun/partial-shade; deciduous with late-appearing leaves and pink, purple, blue, or white hibiscus flowers early summer through fall. It can be trained to hedge or specimen tree form. Prune in early spring since it blooms on new wood. High heat tolerance; a very old-fashioned garden plant well adapted to deep or sandy soils as long as they’re well drained.

Maintenance

Since it blooms on new wood, spring pruning is helpful; training; some supplemental water may be appreciated in sun.
