Overview

Add an exotic flair to your pond or water garden with the Red Night Blooming Hibiscus Plant. This tropical marginal plant features striking ornamental foliage that are deep maroon in coloration and similar in appearance to maple leaves. The Red Night Blooming Hibiscus Plant injects wonderful texture and color to your pond landscape and is best showcased when planted next to lighter-colored plants. While the foliage of the Red Night Blooming Hibiscus Plant is notable, its most beautiful feature, however, is its deep red flowers that bloom during the late summer. These gorgeous flowers will not only attract compliments but will also serve as a beacon for passing butterflies and hummingbirds.

The Red Night Blooming Hibiscus Plant is a fast growing and easy-to-care-for plant native to the tropics and can reach an impressive 5-feet tall and 3-feet wide in a single growing season. Because of its rapid growth, the Red Night Blooming Hibiscus benefits from regular thinning and pruning. The Red Night Blooming Hibiscus Plant does best when planted in full sun but will tolerate partial shade conditions. However, under partial shade conditions the Red Night Blooming Hibiscus Plant will tend to lose vigor and grow slower and produce less vibrantly-colored leaves.

The Red Night Blooming Hibiscus Plant is not cold tolerant. If you live in an area that experiences freezing winters be sure to over-winter the Red Night Blooming Hibiscus Plant indoors. Remove the Red Night Blooming Hibiscus Plant from the pond in the autumn and maintain as a tropical house plant until spring. The Red Night Blooming Hibiscus Plant is a moisture-loving plant that can be located at the water's edge or potted in a planting container and immersed in up to 2" of water. Zones 7 to 11.
