Notes for Identification: Source: floridatacare: deep, moderately fertile, well drained, and slightly acidic soil is ideal. Regular pruning is necessary in most cases to shape and control size, and to remove unwanted stems. Use as a foundation plant around houses and buildings in frost-free areas. The hibiscus is underused as a tree form. For a spectacular flowering tree, limb up at the base and allow to grow as it will! In colder areas, the hibiscus makes a wonderful summer plant that can be used as an annual or containerized and greenhoused in wintertime. Large, showy flowers almost all year! This writer’s grandfather specialized in grafting various colors of hibiscus onto the same shrub. Traffic would stop to check out the red, white and blue flowers all on the same shrub in the front yard. Anyone interested in attracting hummingbirds should have a hibiscus; many types of butterflies are attracted as well
