February 2016 — Extend your season – add this heat lover! Compact, upright habit with eye-catching burgundy colour, ‘Little Zin’ Hibiscus from Ball Floraplant is perfect for summer combos…

Hibiscus rooted cuttings should be ready for transplanting 21 to 28 days after sticking. ‘Little Zin’ should be kept evenly moist with some drying between waterings to give the most consistent quality growth.

When plants are young, allow the media to dry slightly between watering. Excessive moisture for prolonged periods can cause plant stretch and undesirable growth habit.

Pinch plants back seven to 10 days after transplanting to improve basal branching. Pinching will improve overall branching and habit of the finished product.

It grows 18-24″ (46-61cm) tall by 18-24″ (46-61cm) wide. The attractive dark burgundy foliage pairs well in combination with other plants.

‘Little Zin’ Thrives in the heat and full sun. www.ballfloraplant.com
