Water regularly to prevent the roots from drying out. It is recommended to add plant nutrition along with water on a regular basis. If planted in a pot, we recommend that you do not rotate it as this can cause the flowers to drop off as they always turn to the light. In summer protect the plant from bright sunlight. Flowering begins in summer and lasts until autumn.
Hibiscus during winterAs this giant hibiscus is a perennial, the stems above ground will die off prior to the arrival of winter. Next spring new shoots will appear from the roots. Protect the roots against severe frost with a layer of fallen leaves or straw. In a pot, it would be best to over winter your Hibiscus ‘Kopper King’ in a cool, sheltered place, protected from frost.
