Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral sunkissed On Jan 30, 2011, sunkissed from Winter Springs, FL (Zone 9b) wrote:

This plant has been in my garden for four seasons, and was a wonderful sight each summer with constant pink flowers. However in Central FL the last two winters hard freezes took it to the ground. It has come back from the freezes but hasn't flowered in two seasons, only gets green foliage that looks very healthy. I notice all Hibiscuses in my zone are coming back but not flowering. I guess it is just getting too cold in Central FL for this tender tropical anymore. If I try anymore Hibiscus it will be in a large pot that I can take inside the porch when temps dip below freezing...and they seem to be doing that more and more here.

This is a very easy tropical hibiscus. It blooms almost year round if you bring it inside to a sunny location in the winter. The cuttings of this one root easily.
