The Texas Star Hibiscus

The Texas Star Hibiscus

If you thought the hibiscus flower was only reminiscent of Hawaii, you thought wrong: there is a version of the hibiscus flower that is native to none other than the Fort Worth area. Known as the Texas Star Hibiscus, it is a late blooming flower and it doesn’t stay open for long—but when it does, it’s nearly as pretty as the traditional hibiscus flowers that we all know so well.

To grow a Texas Star Hibiscus, a partially shaded area is generally considered the best growing environment. The flower requires well drained soil and three feet between each planting.
