The Tropical White Rose of Sharon Hibiscus Tree adds a burst of tropical opulence to your garden from July to October. The pure white blooms look lovely against its dark green leaves. A fast-growing tree, the White Tropical Hibiscus has abundant flowers and blooms best if you prune back the branches in late spring. Remove dead or injured branches when possible for even more blooms that attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
A Lovely Lacy Look in Any Setting
The White Tropical Hibiscus is very adaptable because it thrives in extreme heat, tolerates the pollution of the city, and grows in most well-draining soils. Try to plant in areas where it can get the most sun, and make sure it gets watered weekly when first planted. Don’t over-fertilize, just use 2 inches of mulch once a year for this fast-grower.
Many Uses Alone or in Groups
For a cozy cottage look, plant in rows around your home. Or bring interest to your patio and plant in containers as a stand alone tree. Makes a beautiful border along or your driveway and can also be used to highlight your favorite areas in your garden. This dwarf tree can grow up to 10 feet high and spread 3 feet wide, so give it some space if planting in groups.
