Hibiscus rosa-sinensis

This Cheerful bright red hibiscus grew in a large pot on our Florida back porch for a year, until we left for the summer and it could not survive the hot summer without water. Hibiscus thrive on lots of water and fertilizer. They will live a long time, if they are cared for. My son moves his 30-year old hibiscus inside in the winter in Minneapolis and back outside in the summer. It has become root bound, but with fertilizer and water, keeps on blooming.
