- 1). Plant hibiscus in partial to full sun in soil that is rich in organic matter and well-draining. The shrub will tolerate soil with a pH from 3.7 to 7.3.
- 2). Prune the shrub in early spring before the new growth starts growing. Cut off one-third of the plant being careful to remove the oldest wood first and any broken or diseased branches. Cut the wood off at ground level. The plant will flower on the season's new growth.
- 3). Water the shrub regularly when it is first establishing but only when necessary after the first two years. Overwatering causes iron chlorosis, a deficiency in iron caused by the iron being leached out in the water, which the plant is sensitive to.
