Information sources for this Hibiscus have not kept up with naming standards. When attempting to research this plant or find it on sale you will need to look for it's synonym Hibiscus cisplatinus or common name Rosa del Rio.

That's really going to depend on several factors. In general if you are planting outside I would say after danger of frost. Indoors you could get a head start planting six to eight weeks before the last frost. Some cold hardy species like Hibiscus moscheutos and H. syriacus could potentially be winter sown.
