A loosely double Tropical Hibiscus with large pumpkin orange flowers that are borne in abundance throughout much of the where kept warm and provided with ample sunlight. Our Double Orange is a fairly full and compact growing, yet vigorous and free flowering hibiscus that lends itself to containers and tropical garden settings. Useful as a medium to large, free flowering informal tropical shrub, as a medium-sized hedge, or for medium to medium-large containers.

 

Tropical Hibiscus are sun and heat loving, medium to large, tropical shrubs with excellent flower power and even some salt tolerance making them popular choices for warm inland as well as coastal climates. Their pollen and nectar rich flowers attract a host of pollinators including bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. They are commonly successfully used as landscape shrubs in the warmer parts of zone 9 and throughout much of zone 10.Remember that these are truly tropical plants and will likely suffer at least some damage from even brief freezes. For more on how to successfully grow Tropical Hibiscus in portions of zones 9 and 10 see the following publication from Texas A&M's AgriLife Extension service titled "Tropical Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) For Galveston County and the Texas Upper Gulf Coast"or click the "More info from Universities..." link to the left.

Tropical Hibiscus make for showy, free-flowering container plants where not hardy. The larger growing varieties are easily trained into tree standards or can be grown as large shrubs or shaped into hedges. Tropical Hibiscus flower on new growth and so need to have ample nutrients, regular moisture, as well as moderate amounts of sunlight available to maintain adequate growth and flower production. As container plants, Tropical Hibiscus will benefit from an annual re-potting or up-potting along with appropriate root and top pruning.

Note:If an otherwise seemingly healthy Hibiscus isn't flowering, is dropping yellow immature buds and lower yellow leaves it may be getting too dry between waterings. Thoroughly water to moisten the entire root-ball each time you water. Allow the soil to become slightly dry between waterings approximately to a depth of between 1/2" deep for small containers to 1" deep for large containers. Never keep the soil soggy. Avoid using a saucer or empty any excess water from it 30-40 minutes after watering.

Double Red Tropical Hibiscus, Chinese Hibiscus, China Rose, Hawaiian Hibiscus, Shoe Flower, Shoe Black Plant

A loosely double Tropical Hibiscus with large deep red flowers that are borne in abundance practically throughout the year. This is a fairly full and compact growing hibiscus that lends itself to containers and tropical garden settings. The Double Red Hibiscus is considered to be one of the first cultivated Chinese Hibiscus,Hibiscus rosa-sinensis,the latter of which translates to the 'rose of China' or 'Chinese rose'. Interestingly, like we've seen other double flowered Hibiscus do, flowers produced during winter can be single, though when the days lengthen the plant goes back to producing the typical double flowers again. The flowers of the red forms of Tropical Hibiscus are used to shine shoes in places like India giving it the names Shoe Plant and Shoe Black Plant. Item# 9683.
