The Hibiscus Orange Lagos is a large shrub variety that can grow up to 5-10 feet tall, however when planted in a pot, can remain a manageable size of 2-5 feet tall. When growing the Hibiscus Orange Lagos, it is important to ensure you provide regular water and enough sunlight to thrive. When planted in an area of full sun, you should expect to see lovely red-crimson and vinous flowers, but if in a semi-shade area, yellow and orange flowers will typically appear.
This everblooming variety is extremely easy to grow, with plants beginning to flower as soon as 3-4 inches tall. It is suitable for cultivation in USDA Hardiness Zones 9-11, and although an evergreen shrub, rain and cold winter temperatures should be taken into account when planning where to grow it. If planted in a pot, it may be advisable to move your Hibiscus Orange Lagos indoors during the colder months to ensure it survives the winter. As it is susceptible to frost, you should also make sure to water plenty in the fall months to establish rooting in the colder months. When growing in a pot, use a light mix of soil such as potting soil, as this will help with its need for regular watering by allowing the water to flow and move quickly. When watering, aim to keep the soil moist throughout the growing season, and when the weather is hotter, water more frequently to keep its soil moist. Make sure to keep an eye out for any pests, such as aphids or mealybugs, and use the appropriate pesticide to rid them from your plant.
With the proper care and attention, the Hibiscus Orange Lagos can be a beautiful and rewarding addition to any garden.
