What kind of fertilizer do I use for my hibiscus?

This is a great question! Usually with flowering shrubs, they need phosphorus. Not hibiscus!

Hibiscus need potasium. Potassium is the third number listed on the fertilizer label (NPK). Look for a fertilizer with medium nitrogen (N), low phosphorus (P) and high potassium (K). Then, be sure to follow directions on the label.

Thanks for writing!
