Big ruffled blooms, the Double Red Tropical Hibiscus Shrub (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Double Red') thrills with big double red blossoms that have saturated ruffled petals! The blooms stand out among the glossy green upright growth and accent the toothy foliage! Growing 5-10 feet in time, sometimes larger in the ground, these shrubby bushes can reach a 3-6 foot width.

These shrub-form tropicals do fantastic as indoor houseplants and as container plants on your patio and porch! Warm growing zones that are frost free can even enjoy them as year-round accents! Bees, butterflies and hummingbirds will stop by your flowers to sip their nectar! The shrubby multi-stemmed tropical plants look fantastic even when not in bloom, but bloom these do frequently throughout the growing season!

Easy to care for, Tropical Hibiscus don't like being moved around a lot, preferring to settle into an area free of drafts in a bright sunny location that is warm. Moving plants indoors for the winter will result in a bit of leaf drop as they reacclimate to their new surroundings, but fret not, once they do get settled, they quickly recover!

Planting and Application:

In frost-free growing zones, these are year-round shrubs that become fantastic privacy hedges, and screen off an eyesore or hide you from prying eyes. Tall hedges or informal backdrops Hibiscus are bushy enough to be dense background plants! Plant behind your perennial borders and mixed-shrub plantings. But once these are in bloom, there's no way they'll remain in the background for long! The big red blooms create fantastic specimens and focal points that will be sure to have all the focus of your garden!

Hibiscus are great for containers and planters! Happily growing in any pot with good drainage on a sunny porch or patio, balcony and rooftop garden! Place around pools and seating areas, front entries in a fancy pot to welcome you and your guests to your home. Dress up a bistro nook with colorful blooms or add pinpoint shade to your backyard spaces.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Hardy outdoors year-round in USDA growing zones 10-11, but all other climates can use these plants as summer accents! Tropical Hibiscus loves full sun and also tolerates partial shade.

Prune or pinch back stems after flowering to encourage branching, remove damaged and head back leggy branches.

  • Regular Fertility
  • Prune/Pinch Back After Flowering
