Disco Belle is a hardy perennial in zones 5-10. This spectacular variety sports huge 9 inch parasol-shaped blooms in a shade of bright rosy red.(or Pink) Compact, bushy plants produce non-stop blooms from mid summer to late fall in full to part sun. Hibiscus is relatively pest free, and is an excellent performer in heat and humidity.Easily grown in average, medium to wet soils in full sun. Best in moist, organically rich soils, but does surprisingly well in average garden soils as long as those soils are not allowed to dry out. Regular deep watering is advisable. Tolerates some light shade, but full sun with good air circulation produces best flowers, strongest stems and the best environment for resisting potential diseases. Site in locations protected from wind to minimize risk of wind burn. Deadhead individual flowers to maintain plant appearance. Cut back stems to approximately 3-4" in late autumn. New growth shoots are slow to emerge in spring.However, once new growth begins, it proceeds quite rapidly and plants will benefit from regular fertilization during the growing season.
