Dark green leaves have a hint of burgundy for an unexpected burst of color.

Use this impressive shrub to line a walkway or frame a deck or patio. At about 3 feet tall, the Head Over Heels® Blush Hibiscus can be a wonderful foundation planting. Feature this Hibiscus in a mixed bed or use it as a specimen. The tropical-looking flowers will give your space a relaxed vibe. Grow this beauty in zones 6 through 10.

Head Over Heels® Blush Hibiscus Care

Plant Head Over Heels® Blush Hibiscus in full sun. This beauty needs at least 6 hours of direct sunlight to set flowers and look its best. Rich soil with moderate moisture and good drainage is vital. New plants need consistent water, while established Hibiscus shrubs need water weekly, depending on rainfall. A thick layer of mulch will retain moisture and reduce weeds. Use a slow-release fertilizer in early spring, after the flowers fade, and again in midsummer and fall to help the plant thrive.

Prune the plant as needed in early spring to shape the shrub and encourage more branching. Remove dead or damaged growth at any time.

Head Over Heels® Blush Hibiscus Spacing

A mature shrub stands 2 to 3 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide. Space Head Over Heels® Blush Hibiscus shrubs 3 feet apart when creating a dense planting.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
