How To Plant Midnight Marvel Rose Mallow
Be sure to plant the Midnight Marvel Rose Mallow in a location that offers full sun to part shade and it prefers a moist but well-draining soil. Have some patience when it comes to this Hibiscus, as they are one of the last ones to break dormancy in spring!
How To Water
Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water very slowly and very thoroughly. The water needs to reach to the bottom of the root ball and that takes time. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late year. Continue this for three years to get your plant well established.
How To Prune
For fuller plants, pinch the tips of each stem when they are between 6 and 8" tall. This will force your plants to branch and to generate more flowers.
