Think you need a boost of color for your living room? Throw pillows not cutting it? How about a hibiscus? The colors of the blossoms are so lively and intense, and when they’re not there the dark green foliage is perfect. I just got this beauty from Swanson’s Nursery and love how it makes a formerly bland corner feel more decorative.
Remember, this is a tropical plant so it’ll need bright light (think southern or western-facing windows) and warmth. I doubt your house ever gets below about 55 degrees, but that’s about the lowest this plant can handle. Mist the foliage daily to prevent mites. Keep the soil moist, but provide good drainage. Best of all, with care this plant should last a long time – possibly getting up to 5 feet tall!
