flowers are among the prettiest, most interesting and easy-to-identify
of all flowers. When looking at a hibiscus flower, you will
see a particular arrangement of flower parts -- a staminal
tube surrounding a long, slender style that's split into slender,
spreading branches at the top. This prominent pistil and stamen
structure adds to the beauty of the hibiscus flower.
hibiscus flowers begin to appear in late July or early August.
Once they start blooming, they usually keep blooming until
a killing frost in the fall. The hibiscus flower will appear
and last for only one day. While each bloom only lasts for
one day, the hardy hibiscus is prolific, sometimes producing
more than a hundred blooms in a season.
the hibiscus plant in a sunny area to achieve maximum growth
of hibiscus flowers. They need a minimum of 6 hours of sun
each day. They do best when placed in a sunny area in soils
with lots of organic matter. Hibiscus flowers appear on the
ends of branches, so do not pinch off late in the growing
season, or the hibiscus flower will be delayed into late summer.
