The giant hibiscus 'Kopper King' loves the sun but prefers a warm sheltered spot. Near a south facing wall is ideal. Provide a humus rich soil. You can improve garden soil by mixing in some compost or potting compost. Hibiscus grandiflorus 'Kopper King' is a beautiful garden shrub, but looks great in a planter on the patio. When planting in pots always use fresh potting compost.
Deadheading the faded flowers before they begin to form seeds will help to encourage more flowers and maintain the appearance of the Hibiscus grandiflorus 'Kopper King'. Water regularly to prevent the roots from drying out. It is recommended to add plant nutrition along with water on a regular basis. If planted in a pot, we recommend that you do not rotate it as this can cause the flowers to drop off as they always turn to the light. In summer protect the plant from bright sunlight. Flowering begins in summer and lasts until autumn.
