Hibiscus is a genus of sun-loving shrubs and small trees with tropical-looking showy flowers in shades such as pink, bright red, pastel orange, white, and yellow. Hibiscus flowers are easily recognizable with their funnel shape, large papery petals, and contrasting colorful centers.
Hibiscus will tolerate partial shade, but its greatest blooming is attained in full sun. To sustain a healthy plant, the soil should be kept uniformly moist. In hot, sunny weather, this will require watering every day. Perennial hibiscus blooms in mid to late summer.
