Hibiscus in full sun?


I received a hibiscus plant. Can you give me information on the care of it? Can it be placed out in full sun? - Marilyn -

    Did you receive a tropical hibiscus? It would help to have some information from the plant tag, but generally hibiscus do like a lot of sun.

    The tropical hibiscus has the green glossy leaves while the perennial has a duller green leaf. Either one of them will take full sun.
