Hibiscus are deciduous shrubs with dark green leaves; flowers may be up to 6 inches diameter, with colors ranging from yellow to peach to red. Hibiscus can be planted singly or grown as a hedge plant; they can also be pruned into a single-stemmed small tree. This popular landscape shrub creates a bold effect with its medium-textured, glossy dark green leaves and vibrantly colored, four to eight-inch-wide, showy flowers, produced throughout the year. Cultivars are available with single or double flowers in shades of white, pink, red, yellow, peach, or orange, or combinations of these. Flowers are produced continuously in great abundance, making up for the fact that each flower will last only one or two days. Hibiscus is renowned for its beauty as well as its medicinal uses, and gardeners cultivate the plant for its showy flowers.
