Hibiscus ‘Black Dragon’ (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis hybrid)
‘Black Dragon’s outstanding blooms are sure to impress you! The 8” deep burgundy flowers have unusual, eye-catching black centers. The American Hibiscus Society named it the 2005 Hibiscus of the Year. The bush is a slow grower and once it reaches 18” it starts to grow laterally. However, the spectacular blooms more than offset its growth habit. Grow in full sun with lots of water and fertilizer.
Hardiness Zone 10
Bloom Season Everbloomer
Sun Requirement Full Sun
Grows to 2-4'
Minimum Temperature Indoors 60

 

Tips for Success:
 

• Sun, sun and more sun.

• They are warm-growing plants and suffer if subjected to
   cool temperatures over extended periods. As a rule, keep
   temperatures above 65°F, especially in the winter.

• Water on visual soil dryness or plant wilt. Severe wilt can hurt
  them. Careful watering is critical during the winter or anytime
  when the light level is low and temperatures are cool.

• Under high light and warm temperatures they are
  heavy feeders 
and need a balanced fertilizer applied
  on a regular basis. A fertilizer like Dyna Gro “Grow” 7-9-5 will
  help induce blooms.

• Flowering varies widely between varieties. Full sun, warm
  temperatures, a balanced fertilizer and careful attention to
  watering will produce the best results for your hibiscus.



  1. Amazing flower!! Review by Michael
    How do you rate this product?

    I bought several hibiscus and with Black Dragon I second guessed my decision because it was the darkest of all my selection. It ended up being my favorite so far!!
    To start off, the plant was very healthy, and with my first successful bloom, the flower was HUGE, so far bigger than my other 15 exotic hibiscus plants. Last but not least the color is spectacular, actually like a bright fluorescent maroon, a little hard to describe but the color but it's more beautiful than the picture here, I would be happy to submit one :) (Posted on 7/28/2016)

  2. This hibiscus is a winner! Review by Dwayne
    How do you rate this product?

    Black Dragon demands your attention when it's growing in your garden. The vibrant coloring of this hibiscus is truly remarkable. As the sun begins to set the blooms look even more dramatic and richer. Just watch everyone's reaction as they eye this beauty. Black Dragon is also very special as well, due to the fact that you don't find everyone selling this plant. A great purchase! (Posted on 10/15/2014)
