I love flowers that are vivid in colors. I have a few species of hibiscus at home but I love the multi layered ones. These double red hibiscus are beautiful and bloom throughout the year. The more I prune the tall shrubs , the more blooms I get. A sight to behold every morning ! It takes very little to make me happy. I understand that red hibiscus contains antioxidants called anthocyanin which cause the red coloring of hibiscus flowers, as well as berries and red wine. And they have medicinal values too. I still have a lot to learn of this hibiscus plants but I know I am in love with it. Will be looking for more beautiful species in the near future. But SPACE is what I need at the moment. Vertical gardening ? Yea...maybe I should look into occupying my flat roof for roof gardening :)
When hibiscus are in their blooming stage, they require large amounts of water. Your hibiscus will need daily watering in warm weather . Once the weather cools, hibiscus needs less water. Good drainage is important. A growing hibiscus plant needs lots of nutrients in order to bloom well. I give them liquid Fish Amino Acid once a month and fertiliser with high potassium for plenty of blooms twice a month.
love the double red hibiscus
Have a wonderful day!
