Hello Sylvia, years ago someone told me that the only thing Hibiscus needs is water. I have seen them growing in the Carribean and never thought they would manage here in the Norfolk Fens, where we have about the least rainfall in the UK and it often drops below freezing in the winter.
I grow one just outside my front fence on shallow thin soil facing West, it is lucky if it gets watered twice each summer and apart from that gets no attention at all.
It is flourishing
