Top Tips

  • To ensure plenty of flowers, plant in a sunny position, sheltered from strong winds.
  • Prune back two or three buds in the late winter months or early spring to encourage larger flowers the following summer - if the shrub is left unpruned, it will continue to produce numerous blooms, but they will often be smaller in diameter.

Care Information

  • Hibiscus grows well in average soil and once established requires very little care - withstanding periods of drought. It also tolerates summer heat and humidity.
  • Grow in a sheltered spot in full sun with a humus-rich moist soil, keep well-watered as these plants don't like to dry out.
  • Happy in a large container as long as you keep it well-watered and protect the crown with a dry mulch through the winter months.
  • Trim any dead or damaged growth each year in mid spring and remove faded flowers.
  • Hibiscus flower on the current season's growth, so pruning encourages them to flower prolifically.
  • Hibiscus can be bare of leaves right up until May, so don't think that your plant has expired - keep it well watered and it will burst into life when ready!
