Double Yellow Delite is a vigorous, bushy growing tropical hibiscus cultivar that is suitable for growing in tropical and sub tropical landscapes or as a potted plant for the porch, poolside, or patio.


Typically Double Yellow Hibiscus have always leaned toward the fussy direction, with beautiful blooms, but on weak, disease prone plants, until this cultivar came along.  Double Yellow Delite is a beautiful double yellow that is naturally occurring sport from a vigorous growing single yellow landscape cultivar, and it retained all those best qualities.


The flowers are large, dense, tight doubles about 3 to 4 inches across in bright, sunny, golden yellow.  It is a reliable, prolific repeat bloomer with dense, glossy, deep green foliage.  The plant is sturdy and resilient with a high degree of natural disease and nematode resistance. 

Left unpruned, Double Yellow Delite will reach a mature height of about 3 to 4 feet, but is easy to maintain at lower heights. Frequent pruning is beneficial and helps the plant grower bushier and stronger and produces more lush golden yellow filly double yellow flowers.

Direct planting of 4 inch starter size plants is not recommended, so for the best results with your new plant, we recommend it be repotted and allowed to grow larger before setting out in the landscape within the recommended USDA Zone range.

When the new pot has filled with roots and the plant is larger, then here a few hints for successful growing in the landscape. can be grown as a potted plant indefinitely.

  • Plant in fertile well draining, slightly acidic soil. Amend with high quality organic material as needed.

  • Locate in full sun to very lightly dappled shade.

  • Provide supplemental irrigation.

  • Feed a good quality, slow release, bloom boosting fertilize with the initial planting and twice yearly in the early Spring and early Fall thereafter. 

  • Supplement with a water soluble plant food in between feeding.

  • Prune lightly and often when young to encourage branching and after flowering to promote uniform shape and control size.
