Family: Malvaceae
Origin: Fidji
Large shrub 5-10 ft tallSemi-shadeFull sunRegular waterPink flowers

This large shrub grows up to 5 - 10 ft tall, and blooms large vibrant pink flowers. It is not picky about the soil and will adapt to any pH level. It thrives in full sun and semi-shade and requires regular watering, although drought-tolerant once established. It is a beautiful addition to any garden and an ideal choice if a large shrub is desired.

Hibiscus storckii is known to be a hardy species and can be grown outdoors in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 9 - 11. For areas where temperatures get frosty and winters become cold, it is best to grow Hibiscus storckii indoors in a pot. For the potting soil, use a mix of regular potting soil and sand to ensure good drainage. Make sure to provide full sun or partial shade, depending on the amount of sunlight it receives outdoors. Water when the top few inches of the soil is dry, and fertilize regularly with a balanced slow-release fertilizer. For cold regions, bring the pot indoors during winter and keep it in a bright and cool area with temperatures around 60 F. This will cause the plant to go dormant and stop growing. When the temperatures start to warm up, bring the pot back outside and resume regular care.
