Red Hibiscus Description

Red Hibiscus 

The Red Hibiscus is extensively known for its big fascinating red rose-like colored flowers. It is botanically named Hibiscus rosa-Sinensis and belongs to the Malvaceae family. They are also known as China rose, rose mallow, and many more. It is widely grown in the subtropics and tropics. The plant initially belonged to Asia. 

The tree is prominent for its beautiful and vibrant colors of flowers like red, orange, pink, yellow, and purple. This tree (Hibiscus syriacus, also called red althea shrub) and hibiscus rosa-sinensis are closely related. These Kim Red Hibiscuses are distinguished by their dark rosy red flowers. 

The trees are flower shrubs that grow at small heights of 8-16 feet and a spread of 5-10 feet. Plant these small-sized trees in any little corner to make that corner significant and attractive. It has pretty flowers ranging in sizes from 2-10 inches, and the plant's dark green leaves are wedge-shaped. Most flower shrubs are 4-10 feet tall and 3-6 feet wide. The wedgy leaves are velvety on the bottom side and can grow to 8 inches.

Red Hibiscus is a beautiful spring and summer bloomer


In sunlight, they grow faster and more rapidly. March and October are significant for the hibiscus when they can effortlessly bloom in mid-summer to early fall. They have a medium to high growth rate as they are warm and adaptive, so summer is the best growing season. The zone of this plant is 5-9. They are straightforward to grow as they are well adapted to moist and well-drained soil, but sandy and loamy soil are their favorites.

They enjoy growing in slightly acidic soil with a pH between 6.5-6.8. The plant is a very low-maintenance plant. In the first year of the plantation, they only require watering like all plants; they don't need intensive care once they are grown.

Feel free to prune the tree any month, but pruning in late summer or early fall is the supreme time when plants can regulate their shape and grow better. The tree symbolizes love, energy, and passion; in China, it is considered a symbol of luck and prosperity. The dark red color attracts flies, hummingbirds, and butterflies, and hence they become the source of pollination. The Red Hibiscus plants are intransigent against harmful pests and disease-causing insects.

People who buy this plant directly fall in love. These are planted in groups with tiny spaces, and their dense bushes beautify gardens. In early spring, the red blooms of this plant will enhance and adorn your landscape.
