Braided Hibiscus Tree
The Braided Hibiscus Tree Red President is a gorgeous tropical flowering tree! Use this plant to add pops of color all over your patio or landscape. The flower is approximately 5 inches in diameter. This plant attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.
Hibiscus plants do best in temperatures from 60 to 90°F. The Braided Hibiscus Tree Red plants cannot tolerate freezing temperatures. These plants do best with full sun to partial shade, but prefer 6-8 hours of direct sunlight. For watering, during summer/hot months the Hibiscus plant should be watered daily. It will also require lots of water while in bloom. During cooler months Hibiscus plants do not need as much water; only water if the soil feels dry to the touch. In this circumstance, overwatering can result in the death of the Hibiscus plant.
About Our Plants
Our soil is custom blended and contains only the highest quality Canadian peat. We don’t try to cut cost with cheaper mixes. Additionally, all of our plants are grown with 100 to 180 day time release fertilizer so you won’t be running out of it just when the plants arrive. This is not the case with the quick release 30 day fertilizers that many other companies tend to use.
We do approximately 90% of our own liners. Since the cost is relatively inexpensive, we put twice as many liners in each container for many of the varieties. Accordingly, this makes for a much fuller plant.
All of our plants are given more than adequate spacing. For instance, most of the flowering bushes and trellis plants have 4 square feet of spacing. The Boston fern hanging baskets, for example, have 6 square feet. This allows our plants to grow as big and full as possible.
