When it comes to flower splendor and beauty, no flower can compete with the hibiscus. Its dark green leaves have a jagged leaf shape. They shimmer slightly and form the most appropriate background for the delicate hibiscus flowers, before which they unfold their splendor. The color spectrum is broad and ranges from white to soft pink to crimson and violet. There are still varieties that are even more striking and flowers in yellow and rusty brown wear. As a flowering plant, the hibiscus needs a sunny spot indoors and a well sheltered location outside. At temperatures between 18 and 22 degrees C, he feels powdery. Only when the thermometer rises above 15 degrees in the spring, you can bring the hibiscus outside on your terrace or balcony. But choose for him a place without direct solar radiation, because the delicate plant does not like the bright sun.

Cut hibiscus and overwinter
These two aspects of hibiscus care are especially important for the proper growth of the plant and for its magnificent blooms, so we want to pay extra attention to it. If you cultivate a shrub in the garden, then you know it well – this garden shrub is hardy. We just recommend cutting this one in the spring. Then the hibiscus brings strong shoots and grows fast. Also, be warned that such plants often grow in height, but they do not bloom. Experts recommend cutting the garden fish every three years. Then you can count on beautiful flowers from late May to late September.
The outdoors growing hibiscus plants can survive well in a warm place outside the winter. If your hibiscus is in the pot, we recommend bringing it inside and keeping it in a sunny spot at home over the cold months. However, the delicate plant can not tolerate temperatures below zero, but at those above 15 degrees, the Chinese rose can spend a great winter. Begin the hibernation campaign at the end of September, as gentle Chinese rose no longer tolerates changes in the location.
To admire these delicate flowers, you need to properly care for the hibiscus.
Maintain your Chinese rose so that it does not get brown spots on the leaves. This is a clear sign, on it sits the leaf spot fungus. Fight it and remove the damaged leaves. Wilted leaves and flowers must also be collected and disposed of. In case of water shortage even the leaves fall off, so it is recommended to follow the most important care tips.
