I finally found a "hearty hibiscus" as it is called. I wanted the huge
flowering one. It is still in it's pot, in the NJ summer sun, I water it
every day and fertilized it. Why is it droopy. It's not too much sun, I
tried moving it to shade. I water it every day. Help....thanks
The hardy hibiscus is a hybrid plant and at least some of its forebears are
swamp plants from the Southeast. In my northern area, it is often sold as a
water's edge plant, so that the roots can stay moist all the time. The
foliage is pretty "juicy" and like most plants of that type, will wilt in
mid-day sun and then straighten up again as the intensity of the sunshine
diminishes. It does adapt to dryer borders, I believe, but will probably
always be happiest in the moistest part of your garden. Pots are nearly
always fast-draining and hot.
