Love this hibiscus, it blooms profusely for me every year since I've had it. I purchased it as a small shrub about 3 years ago and now its around 2', but is still compact in shape. Last year though, it and my other hibiscus had a bad case of white fly. I have since removed many of the damaged leaves and have it in a sunny location in the yard. Its very tolerable of our hot summers in the Central Valley. Even more so than the other Tropical Hibiscus I have. The blooms aren't large, but they are numerous every summer.
