What plants compliment hibiscus?
Also, what plants grow well with hibiscus?
Try a mixture of other easy-to-grow companion plants, such as daylilies, delphinium, alium, poppies, peonies and bearded iris. They all grow well in the same soil condition, light and water requirements as the hardy hibiscus.
Likewise, which Hibiscus is perennial? Tropical hibiscus plants are either brought indoors during cold weather or are treated as annuals, because of their sensitivity to the cold. Perennial hibiscus (Hibiscus spp.) are known to be cold hardy, but will still die down to the ground in all but the warmest U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones.
Accordingly, do hibiscus plants spread?
Hibiscus roots do not have an extremely wide root spread. A 3-gallon container, which is approximately 10 inches wide, is big enough to contain a hibiscus shrub. Container hibiscus will grow in a 10-inch pot, but without constraint, the roots will spread several feet under the ground in all directions.
How do you take care of hardy hibiscus?
Hardy hibiscus like moist soils, so keep plants well watered and mulched with bark mulch to prevent weeds from crowding them and maintain the soil moisture. Fertilize in spring with a layer of compost. Hardy hibiscus is slow to emerge in spring in cold areas so be patient. They may not pop out of the ground until June.
