Hibiscus

Zone Phoenix, AZ 85050 | Chuck4126 added on March 2, 2018 | Answered

I live in Phoenix, AZ - I believe Zone 9. I want to know which specific variety of the hibiscus plant is the best at surviving our hot summer heat planted in full sun all day. I need specifics so I know what to ask for when I go to the nursery. As a second condition, I also want the hibiscus to grow to about 8 - 10 feet tall. Please help. Thank You!
