Hibiscus - President Red. These sun-loving plants feature bold, plate-shaped flowers in a dazzling
array of colors. You’ll most commonly find these flowering plants
blooming in shades of red, pink, yellow, and orange, but there are also
purple, lavender-blue, white, and bicolor varieties available. Some also
have variegated foliage that adds appeal.
Hibiscus - President Red are sun-loving, flowering plants that grow best with 6
to 8 hours of direct light each day to bloom the most. They can grow in
part shade, but they tend to bloom less.
Hibiscus appreciate plenty of water, especially when you grow them in in
container gardens. During the hottest part of the season, these
summer-blooming shrubs may need watering every day (especially if their
roots are cramped in a small pot). It's common for hibiscus plants to
drop their flower buds if they dry out too much in summer.
Fertilize hibiscus monthly with a general-purpose fertilizer, following
the directions on the product packaging, to ensure they produce the most
blooms possible. You don't need to use special bloom-boosting
fertilizers; regular, general-purpose products work just fine. Dwarf
hibiscus grow 2-4 feet tall; standard varieties typically grow up to 5
Hibiscus typically don't need much pruning if you grow them in
containers. But, if you do wish to prune your hibiscus, you can do so at
any time to encourage a bushier, fuller plant.
