As with many plants, the right location is also crucial for the hibiscus. Whether rose marshmallow or garden hibiscus, the plants are wrong, they can not develop properly. Too much sun is often just as bad as too little. The same applies to wind and the neighboring plants. The soil at the site must also be suitable, otherwise the plants can not develop well. In hibiscus, this means mostly, little or no flowers and stunted growth. Especially during the wintering the location plays the decisive role, whether the hibiscus is housed outdoors or in the house.
Location for the rose marshmallow
The rosemary can be cultivated as a pure houseplant, but thrives better when he can spend the summer outdoors. However, he must slowly get used to the sun and must not be cleared out too soon. Temperatures must also be above 10 ° C at night. The best way to put the plant in the shade and then every few days a bit sunnier, starting with morning and evening sun. Brilliant midday sun can tolerate a hibiscus, but only after a few weeks, about 3 to 4, better more. The sunnier the plants are, the more water they need. Favorable is a somewhat sheltered place, both from rain, as well as from strong wind, the flowers suffer from both.
The winter must spend the Rose Marshmallow necessarily frost-free. It's a tropical plant, not made for minus temperatures. Even at below 10 ° C, the plants can not cope. Too warm hibernation is not recommended. The room hibiscus needs a rest period and there are too high room temperatures, such as prevail in the living room, not cheap. Better is a bright room, at about 15 ° C. Important is a high humidity, otherwise spread like pests, especially spider mites. These must be recognized early, before they can spread too much. A regular check for infestation is therefore indispensable, not only in the hibiscus, but in all hibernating plants.

Location for garden marshmallow
The garden hibiscus is a pretty robust plant. Only young plants are somewhat sensitive and therefore need a suitable location that protects them a bit. In addition, the growth of the plants must be scheduled. A normal hibiscus bush can be quite extensive, 2 to 3 m must be calculated for him. Narrower remain high trunks. If you have not planned enough space, you can keep the hibiscus smaller by cutting.
If you do not live in a region with very cold winters, you can plant the hibiscus almost everywhere in the garden, where there is enough light and sunshine. We recommend a sheltered place, especially against cold eastern winds, which can damage the plants in winter. In colder areas plant garden marshmallow very protected, directly in front of a south-facing wall, preferably in a sheltered corner. There, the trees are best clear. Favorable are then still some coverage of the root area in winter and abundant watering in the summer. At the location, the soil is also crucial. Although it can be adapted to the respective requirements as far as possible, but from the ground substance he should fit. Important is a loose, well-drained soil, which allows excess water to drain quickly, but can still store moisture. This works well if some clay is included. Otherwise, a high nutrient is favorable.
The garden hibiscus works very well as a solitary, but can also be planted in groups. Especially tall trees planted in series make a nice picture. Even as hedge plants this hibiscus can be used, although the leaves fall off in autumn. In the summer the hedges look very nice.
- Sunny and warm
- Wind protected, especially against easterly winds
- Leave enough space around (planting distances)
- Permeable soil, nutritious, slightly clayey
