Additional Information - Attractive to butterflies. Give a mulch of compost in the spring. Hardy hibiscuses are late to come into leaf and their twiggy, grey stems often stay bare until June. When the leaves do emerge, they're usually pale yellow but soon darken.Feed your shrubs twice a month during active growth to encourage optimum health and development. Water regularly until plant is established. Fully hardy perennial.
