Hibiscus ‘Cooperii’ (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis cooperii)

Grown for its stunning variegated foliage and brilliant single red flowers, this heritage hibiscus cultivar is making a comeback. Hibiscus ‘Cooperii’ creates a fancy showpiece in the garden with its brilliantly colored leaves in shades of burgundy red, pink, white and green. Grow in full sunlight for maximum color intensity. If grown in the shade or the lower light level in winter the foliage turns green but it will return to vibrant colors once it’s given full sunlight. Hibiscus ‘Cooperii’ makes a fancy standard or grow it where a vibrant color statement is needed.

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.
