It's a good thing that Hollywood Hibiscus love the leisurely, warm days of fall in the South and will keep blooming their heads off as long as the temperatures are high. It's also a good thing that the yellows, reds, and oranges of your favorite Hollywoods are perfect for mixing and matching for non-traditional, but nevertheless lovely, displays for gardeners in frost-free areas.
We recommend planting some ornamental millet or ornamental grass with your Hollywood Hibiscus. Then, fill in with 4-inch or quart sized mums that complement the Hollywood colors. When the mums finish blooming, you can pull them out and pop a fresh set in.
HOLLYWOODS PLAN THEIR WINTER VACATIONS
Hollywoods are definitely fair weather plants when it comes to outdoor living. They'll keep frolicking outdoors all year in zones 9, 10, and 11 (see above). But if you live where it's cold, there's a good chance your Hollywoods are planning their tropical winter vacations. Here's how to help Hollywoods escape the cold.
If you're in zone 8 or colder, cut plants back to 6-8 inches tall and place them somewhere warm, bright, and slightly humid.
Pull back a bit on watering, only giving them a drink when the soil is dry. They’ll slow down or stop blooming.
In the spring, you can move them back outside again when nighttime temperatures are above 65 degrees. Alternatively, you can compost them in the winter and start fresh with new plants in the spring.
