#ProPlantTips for Care:

Lady Baltimore is adaptable to a variety of soils and will even do well in moist conditions. Hardy Hibiscus does best in full sun for the most blooms Their adaptability to occasionally wet and dry soils is incredible, but they do best with consistent watering and will keep your plant stress-free. Please be patient, as they are one of the last plants to start growing in spring.

Apply a 3-4 inch layer of mulch over the top of the roots, pulling them back away from the roots. As flowers are done, remove them for a more manicured look, then in early spring, trim down all the stems to the ground. Watch for the new growth to come up from the roots.

  • Full Sun Perennials
  • Any Well-Drained Soil
  • Tolerates Average to Wet Soils & Occasional Drought
  • Deadhead After Flowers Fade & Prune Early Spring
  • Cold-Hardy & Heat-Tolerant

Who wouldn't want a perennial that practically screams out its presence in their yard? Lady Baltimore Hardy Hibiscus does just that. This fast-growing, vibrant perennial will be a show-stopper in your yard this year! Order yours next time you visit Nature Hills!
