Tropical hibiscus - a touch of tropics. It forms blooms up to 8" on a shrubby upright plant that you can train to grow as a tree. Individual blossoms last only a day or 2, but bloom freely from late spring through fall-winter. Keep the soil uniformly moist & give much indoor light to keep it blooming. Growing Conditions: Bright to intense light; 55-70 degrees F.; keep soil evenly moist Size: To 6 feet tall and 4 feet wide
