El Capitolio Red Hibiscus - 3" pot
The El Capitolio varieties, like all the hibiscus ancestor plants, are vigorous, strong, fast-growing, large plants that flower all the time in good conditions. Outside they can reach 8' in a large pot, although they can be trimmed to the size desired if they start to get too big. Like the other ancestors of the modern hibiscus, El Capitolio is well suited for sunny and hot growing conditions. It is also known for attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

★★★ SORRY CALIFORNIA, WE CANNOT SHIP LIVE PLANTS TO YOU FOR THE TIME BEING ★★★
PLANTS ARE NOT PERFECT! While we try our best to make sure every plant looks amazing, it is possible that a small burn spot or tiny hole may be present. We do grow our plants organically and some are grown outside, so its possible for nature to make a small imperfection.
PLEASE NOTE: For live plant orders, we only ship Monday through Wednesday to prevent plants from sitting over the weekend. We want your plants to arrive alive!
Shipping notes: Because your plant has been in a box without sunlight for a few days during shipping, it may be slightly yellow or drop a few leaves when it first arrives. This is normal. (If it loses all its leaves, this is usually not normal and you should contact us.) Adjust your plant to the light slowly, NEVER put it in the bright sun right away, as it can shock the plant and cause it to die.
❄❄❄ Cold Weather Shipping ❄❄❄
If the temperature in your region is below freezing we recommend (and prefer) you waiting for better weather. You can purchase a heat pack, but please be aware that there are no guarantees of the plant not freezing. We recommend purchasing when the weather in your region is comfortable enough for the plant to arrive safely. During winter, we only use USPS Priority Mail for all standard shipping because priority mail travels mainly by air, and the post office does not leave packages in trucks outside overnight. Between careful monitoring of the weather and priority mail, we have been able to provide our customers plants year round with few issues. If the day-time temperature falls close to freezing in your state, we can no longer safely ship using priority mail.
No international shipping for live plants.
