Watch as Better Homes and Gardens shows youhow to grow hibiscus in any climate! These beautiful garden flowers don’t have to be left in the tropics. Bring a bit of paradise to your garden by introducing the hibiscus plant, no matter the climate you live in. A great option for a potted plant is the tropical hibiscus. This dazzling beauty blooms in the summer, but unfortunately doesn’t do well with freezing temperatures. This hibiscus plant would have to be a single-season plant unless you moved it indoors for the winter season. Not to fret if you live in the chilly northern region, as there are other hibiscus flower options that thrive in cold weather. Perennial hibiscus, or rose mallow, reemerges each spring after falling to the ground at the beginning of winter. Mini varieties are a hardy hibiscus to Zone 4. A hardy shrub hibiscus called Rose of Sharon does well in Zone 5 and emerges in gardens in the midsummer with colorful blossoms. Hibiscus flowers are not only dazzling, but they can also provide a piece of a tropical getaway for you, no matter where you live!
