Large Hibiscus plant care

Anonymous added on July 24, 2015 | Answered

We have 3 large hibiscus plants that are starting to bloom. One is nearly 5.5 ft tall, and is falling over due to the weight of new flower blossoms. Several small branches have also been damaged due to windy rainy storms recently. In order to protect these emerging stems, is there any kind of vertical support we should install so they don't fall over and break or damage themselves?

Dinner plate hibiscus (which is the kind it sounds like you have) need additional support for the blooms. You should buy plant stakes to help support them. These are available at most nurseries.
