Double Peach Tropical Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis ‘Double Peach’)
Double Peach Tropical Hibiscus
Big crepey ruffles, the Double Peach Tropical Hibiscus Shrubs (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis ‘Double Peach’) will delight you with their big double blossoms that are ruffled, curvy and frilly! The big blooms festoon the deep green airy upright growth and toothy foliage! The shrubby, upright, multi-stemmed plants and their glossy foliage look fantastic even when not in bloom, but bloom these do frequently throughout the growing season.
Bees, butterflies and hummingbirds will stop by your flowers to sip the nectar from the red centers (if you can see the centers among all the voluminous ruffles). 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! Growing 5-10 feet in time, sometimes larger in the ground, these shrubby bushes can reach a 3-6 foot width.
Hardy outdoors year-round in USDA growing zones 10-11, but all other climates can use these plants as summer accents! 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!
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.
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. Prune as a hedge or leave as an informal backdrop planting and background plants behind other perennials and shrubs around your landscape. But once these are in bloom, there’s no way they’ll remain in the background for long! Once in bloom, these are fantastic specimens and focal points that draw all the attention!
Tropical Hibiscus loves full sun and also tolerates partial shade. Native to the tropics and preferring to grow in moist environments with nice warm conditions all year round, Hibiscus do best with regular fertility and enriched, organic soil. Prune or pinch back stems after flowering to encourage branching, remove damaged and head back leggy branches.
Big flouncy blooms in juicy peachy hues, the Double Peach Tropical Hibiscus Shrub-Form will delight you and your landscape, both indoors and out!
