The flowers are attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. the leaves are alternate, ovate to lanceolate, often with a toothed or lobed margin. The flowers are large, conspicuous, trumpet-shaped, with five or more petals, colour from white to pink, red, orange, peach, yellow or purple, and from 4–18 cm broad.

CARING & GROWING
Mulch around the plant to retain moisture and to provide protection for the roots. Water plants deeply and thoroughly. To encourage re-bloom, remove old flowers before they form seed heads or prune plants back by one third after a flush of bloom is finished. In early spring, remove dead stems from established plants and apply a balanced fertilizer. You can also chop the extra leaves, as they cluster when the plant begins to age.

|The best hibiscus tree fertilizers can be either slow-release or water-soluble. With either, you will want to fertilize your hibiscus with a balanced fertilizer. This will be a fertilizer that has all the same numbers. So, for example, a 20-20-20 or 10-10-10 fertilizer would be balanced fertilizer.
