Noteworthy Characteristics

Red Hot is a new variety of variegated Hibiscus multi-color foliage that's burgundy, red, pink, green, and white in color! The new growth starts out nearly maroon and lightens to a hot pink that sticks with it all season long adding its color to the landscape in broad strokes. 3-4" glowing red flowers add to its elegance in spring and summer and are sure to attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators.

Uses

Where hardy outdoors, Red Hot Tropical Hibiscus is useful as a colorful accent or specimen shrub or small tree to highlight entryways, as a hedge, espalier to cover bare walls such as the spaces between windows, and makes for an exceptionally nice container plant. Where not winter hardy, it can be used outdoors as an annual in beds or as a container plant that can be overwintered indoors or in a greenhouse when low temperatures drop below 55 degrees.
