Hibiscus for Sale

Hibiscus deliver lots of showy color without a lot of fuss. While many types of hibiscus are available, including tropical plant varieties, hardy hibiscus, or hibiscus moscheutus, is most commonly grown in the United States because it can overwinter outdoors throughout much of the country. Most hardy hibiscus grows in zones 5-9.
A sun-loving, native American perennial, hardy hibiscus produces up to 6", showy flowers in midsummer to early fall. Available in a variety of colors, hibiscus flowers lure pollinators to the garden. Also called swamp rose mallows, these low-maintenance, shrubby-type plants grow up to 6' tall and perform well in moist areas, including along the edges of streams and ponds and in rain gardens. They are often planted as accent plants or grouped to create a temporary hedge or privacy screen. K. van Bourgondien offers a wide selection of hibiscus for sale, including varieties with dark, dramatic foliage.

Hibiscus Flowers - Planting and Growing Tips

Planting Hibiscus Roots

Hibiscus roots can be planted in the spring or the fall. Hibiscus prefers moist soil, rich in organic matter. Hibiscus plants perform best in full sun and where they receive good air circulation. When planting, dig a hole deep and wide enough to accommodate the roots. Space plants 36" apart. Water well after planting.

Maintaining Hibiscus Plants

If rainfall is not adequate, water hibiscus plants thoroughly so that the soil does not dry out. Hibiscus plants are not drought tolerant. If the plants receive adequate moisture and plenty of sun, they have relatively few problems. Monitor the plants for insect damage including Japanese beetles, whiteflies and aphids.

Pruning Hibiscus Plants

Deadheading hibiscus flowers keeps the plants looking tidy. In late fall or early spring, the stalks can be cut back to about 3-4" above the ground.

How to Propagate Hibiscus

While hardy hibiscus can be propagated from seeds or cuttings, propagating hibiscus from cuttings is more common. Take a 4-6" cutting from softwood that has not matured in spring or early summer. Cuttings usually take about 8 weeks to root.
