Cottage Farms 3-in-1 Braided Tropical Hibiscus Tree
Beautiful Blooms No Hassle!
I bought this plant last year and it did very well there are ALWAYS little buds about to bloom and yes they are only for one day ...that's the nature of hibiscus plants but because there are so many blooms you are always with color I brought it in over the winter and it blooms slower in the winter but I walk in the kitchen and I'm greeted with a little color in front of my patio door and I almost feel guilty because I'm practically ignoring it! I'm ordering another one this year! :-)
Love it! We bring inside during winter in front window. After short adjustment period it blooms all winter. We usually get one, two, three or four blooms at a time. Each lasts about a day. The colors are beautiful.
I've purchased from Cottage Farms finally with success! This tree bloomed all summer outside, I live in PA zone 6 and brought it inside before frost this past fall. It has doubled in size since growing and blooming inside now. You really do have to follow instructions. I've had failures with cottage farms and this is a winner!
I bought this 2 summers ago and all I can say is WOW! It's in my house now still blooming. I purchased one for my daughter last year and she loves hers also.
When I got this tree was a little tired if you know what I mean. But fertilied it and watered and a week later BAM.
Bloomed all summer and was BEAUTIFUL.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY AND TIME!!!!!
THE PLANT DOES NOT GROW. IT WENT DEAD ALMOST IMMEDIATELY....
FAVORITE TREES ON MY PATIO
I was surprised and wondered if my 3 new trees were going to amount to anything when they arrived in their boxes from QVC. I am beyond thrilled with the results. It was a gamble in my mind and it paid off. The 3 trees are doing equally well in the good size pots I selected for them at the local "big box" store's garden center. They started blooming almost immediately and have never stopped. To be fair we live in San Diego, but having said that, I have plenty of other uncooperative plants that haven't faired as well from local growers. I highly recommend these braided hibiscus trees to anyone who wants easy to care plants with great color in their garden ,or in our case on the patios.
Other than admire them, I rarely do anything to encourage their continued growth and blooms. I have watered modestly and maybe, in the last 18 months or so they've received fertilizer. I'll be ordering another 3 to 6 of them for our new home shortly. Just 8 miles away, it will be the same climate but now they will be poolside and staggered around the outdoor kitchen and entertainment areas.
I think you'll be very pleased if you choose to purchase these trees and find that the blooms add a festive look to any landscape.
Happy Gardening, #although they really don't require much care.#
I purchased this plant last year and was hoping the tree was going to look beautiful on our deck. It arrived dead, although I didn't know it at the time. I followed directions to the letter. I waited for buds to arrive and inspected it daily. After two months nothing had happened. I was so disappointed about this situation. I also had been led to believe this was a perennial plant and was going to call for another plant. Now I see it was an annual. I feel betrayed.
Not Four Colors As Promised
I bought both the four flower single and double flowering hibiscus trees last year. Both only have two colors that have flowered. It is probably a miracle that they are alive at all considering the condition that they were in when they arrived.The boxes appeared to have been stepped on by an elephant, the plants had broken branches, spilled dirt and were filled with dead leaves. They were shipped before the 3 day Memorial Day weekend and were on the trucks in 90-100 day heat for 10 days. The braided trunks have two large stems and two, very skinny stems being choked as they did on arrival (Cause of only two colors) They needed a lot of nursing, but have survived. Very disappointing !
Tree Did exceptionally well outside, not many blooms the first year, brought in for the winter & it seems to be doing ok.
Thought guaranteed for year
Plant did well outside. When brought in house, 1 of the 3 braids dying/died.
Called cottage farms was told to take the wrap that was holding them together off, as this can be cause of it dying. I would have taken off while outside if had known this. It was thriving at that time might have been able to save it. Not sure what to do now.
Plant was pretty but now that the one is dead, it is not.
Also, no year guarantee for plant.
No yellow blooms
I gave this hibiscus 2 stars only because the other 2 colors bloomed beautifully. The yellow never really had a chance. The branch was very skinny and wilted, much smaller than the other 2 colors. One person mentioned that her flowers bloomed one day and then wilted. That's the way hisbiscus operate. If you have a healthy plant, you will always have blooms. I love them. But I do wish I could get a replacement for this one and try again for the yellow.
