How to Grow and Care for Red Tropical Hibiscus Tree

Red Tropical Hibiscus Tree (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 4-11 patio / 9-11 outdoors


Plant your Red Hibiscus in full sun (around 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily), in an area with well-drained soil. Once you’ve selected your location, dig a hole large enough to accommodate your shrub’s root ball.

If you’re planting in a container, select a pot that’s about twice the width of your shrub’s shipped container. Use organic soil, place your shrub, and select a sunny spot.


Generally, you’ll want to water your shrub about once or twice weekly. If you’re not sure when to water, check your shrub’s soil about 2 or 3 inches down for dryness.


Use a well-balanced fertilizer in the spring to encourage blooming, and follow label instructions.
