Fiji Rose of Sharon Plant Care
For the best blooms, the Fiji Rose of Sharon likes to be grown in full sun. It prefers free-draining, fertile soil that is neutral to alkaline. Keep the soil evenly moist after planting; however, once established, it can also cope with dry periods. To encourage its attractive blooms, you can apply a granular slow-release fertilizer in the spring. However, it is best to avoid overfeeding her, as this can lead to poor flower formation.
Even though little pruning is required, you can prune this Fiji Rose of Sharon to the desired shape in late winter. In colder areas, you can mulch around the base of the plant to help insulate the roots from the worst of the winter.
Fiji Rose of Sharon Plant Spacing
The Fiji Rose of Sharon can reach 5 to 8 feet tall and 4 to 7 feet wide when fully grown. When growing as part of a group, you can space each hibiscus around 4 to 7 feet apart.
