Intense brilliant red blooms on saturated silky petals, the Red Dragon® Hibiscus Bush (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Mongon') sets your landscape on fire! The vibrantly-hued big ruffled blooms show off their stuff against the bushy upright branches full of glossy green toothy foliage! Fantastic as both indoor and outdoor plants, you'll be amazed as they turn any area into the hot spot of the area!

Outdoors, bees, butterflies and hummingbirds will stop by your flowers to sip nectar and these big blooms look like the perfect landing pads for them to alight on. These tropical shrubs are also fantastic as indoor houseplants and as seasonal container plants on your patio and porch! Warm growing zones that are frost-free, can enjoy Hibiscus as year-round accents!

Growing 6-8 feet in height, sometimes larger when planted outside, these shrubby bushes can reach a 3-4 foot width. Exotic Red Dragon adds depth and drama to indoor spaces and landscapes alike! 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:

Red Dragon is ideal in well-drained, sunny pots and planters! Growing in any container on a sunny porch or patio, adding shade and privacy to a balcony and adding tropical color to a sunroom! Dress up a bistro nook with colorful blooms or add pinpoint shade to your backyard spaces. Place around poolside seating areas to create a tropical backyard getaway! Or in fancy urns on either side of your front door to welcome you home.

Hibiscus Bushes grown in the ground throughout frost-free climates are year-round shrubs that form fantastic privacy hedges and screen off an eyesore while hiding you from prying eyes. Prune as a hedge or leave as an informal backdrop planting and background plants behind other perennials and shrubs around your landscape.
