Tropical, bright, and bold—Hibiscus provides all three characteristics. This tropical plant grows well here in Central Florida. While freezing temperatures will knock the plant back in winter, one rejuvenation pruning in late winter will promote a proliferation of re-growth in spring. There are many different varities of hibiscus. Perhaps one of the more popular hibiscus varieties is the Hibiscus rosa-sinensis (Chinese hibiscus). Chinese hibiscus has solid, large blooms. Snow queen hibiscus has variegated white and green leaves. Plant hibiscus in full sun for maximum blooming. Well-drained, slightly acidic, and somewhat moist soil is best. In our Central Florida climate, Hibiscus can grow to 10 feet tall. It makes an excellent focal point in the landscape. You may also consider using Hibiscus in container arrangements (dwarf forms).
