Plants By Type
Red Hibiscus is a perfect choice when planting in growth zones five through nine. This small tree is also considered a shrub because it only grows to around eight feet tall and six feet wide. It will require soils that are moderately wet paired with an area that gets full sun during the day. During the warmer months, it will produce large red blooms that will be highlighted by glossy dark green foliage. This combination gives a tropical feel to the landscape and will bring thoughts of a warm and sun filled vacation. It will be sensitive to cold and should be covered during the winter.
