The hibiscus genus is made up of more than 200 species both deciduous and evergreen, shrubs, trees, annual and herbaceous perennials.
This is a tall perennial with a linear shaped cut green leaves.
It is grown for it's funnel shaped bloom. While blooming a long time, it can be enjoyed in full sun and requires a rich, moist, well-drained soil. To do nicely, hibiscus need a long, hot, summer.
Many die back only to come back bigger and better next year.
They do best in zones 7 - 11.
Seeds may be sown in the spring, or divide the perennial in the spring. Greenwood can be rooted in the spring or semi-ripe cuttings in the summer. Layering will also work in the spring or summer.
