Take-Home Planting Ideas from the Big Island

What Houzz contributors are saying:

1. Work with the old reliables. Originally from tropical Asia, hibiscus is a symbol of Hawaii and makes a fine medium-size evergreen shrub in many parts of California and other mild climates. It's a perfect summer container plant. Start with nursery plants in bud or already blooming and you should have flowers from spring through fall. Botanical name: Hibiscus rosa-sinensisCommon name: HibiscusUSDA zones: 10 to 11 Water requirement: Moderate or more; don't let the soil dry outLight requirement: Full sunMature size: 8 to 15 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide (bigger in the tropics)Growing tips: Good choices for pots include 'Erin Rachel' as well as members of the Breeze series or Luau series, generally reaching 2 to 3 feet.
