Hibiscus rosa-sinensis is a beautiful tropical flower that thrives in Hawaii. It can be grown in other tropical regions. This beautiful specimen is located in a subtropical desert area in zone 13. This particular bush has a growth habit that is dense and dwarfish. It is planted in a large pot outside in partial sun. It is no taller than two feet and the leaves are small. As shown, the flowers are large and gorgeous. They last about a day, opening in the morning, then closing in the evening. The closed flower sticks around for a few days and then falls off. I enjoyed this plant and learning more about it. I hope you enjoy it as well.
