Stone Around Hybiscus-Comments Please

wmrn43aApril 10, 2007

My hybiscus is planted where I have weed cloth and 1 1/2" river stone (light in color) 2" thick. I have heard that the stone may hinder the plants due to heating from the sun. I did not want to use mulch and thought this would work. Plants have been in the ground since Sept. I only notice occassional leaves turning yellow. I do not know the types of hibiscus's I have planted but of the 12 or so half are blooming now.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Other than having to water more than usual, since the stones will cause more water evaporation, I would think they should be fine.
