Red Hibiscus Description

Red Hibiscus 

Red Hibiscus, known scientifically as Hibiscus spp., is a tropical flowering shrub native to the Mediterranean and tropical climates in the United States.

The Red Hibiscus plant bears bright red flowers. Red Hibiscus plants grow relatively quickly as long as they are planted in sunny areas with well-drained soil, regular irrigation, and fertilizer. Choose a sunny growing space for the hibiscus, and in windy locations, plant your Red Hibiscus flower near a building or fence to prevent wind damage to the plants. Red Hibiscus is best planted in the spring, summer, or fall. 


Red hibiscus care and maintenance

Red Hibiscus plants prefer slightly acidic soils. Add some compost to sandy or heavy clay soils, which improves drainage, aeration, nutrient levels, and moisture retention. When planting your Red Hibiscus in the ground, add a few inches of compost to the soil, and mix it into a depth of 6 inches or more. Dig a hole that is the same height as the starter container of your Red Hibiscus.

Plant multiple hibiscuses allowing at least 3 feet between plants. Give your Red Hibiscus at least 1 inch of water per week unless it is rainy weather. Then your Red Hibiscus may not require extra irrigation. Red Hibiscus should be fertilized twice per month during the growing season with a high-nitrogen, low-phosphorus fertilizer. Prune your Red Hibiscus to manage the shrub's size or to shape and maintain its tree form. Deadhead old flowers to encourage new flowering.


Your Red Hibiscus must be protected from freezing temperatures. Cover your outdoor plants with frost blankets or place them in a greenhouse. If planted in pots, your Red Hibiscus is inside during freezing weather. Red Hibiscus shrubs will grow about six feet tall, bearing thick and shiny oval leaves. The white flowers have five petals shaped like a tube that appears throughout the year. 

The Red Hibiscus plant is a great choice for hedge or border plant use. Bees and butterflies will visit your Red Hibiscus plant, making your garden a delightful place to sit and relax.
