Question about unknown Hibiscus
Hello All. This weekend my wife and I purchased 2 very beautiful Hibiscus bushes (the woody bush variety). We don't know the variety (hybrid name) but one is orange and the other is peach. They are not bi-colored--they are solid. My question is this and it should be easy for anyone to answer but I can't seem to get a straight answer. In my area you can see many hibiscuses growing outside and planted in the ground. There are several of these at our church and in yards in many places. It is difficult to tell though if those are a perennial variety of the herbal type of hibiscus or a shrub (the exotic kind) that can't stand our sometimes harsh winters. Is it OK to plant these in the ground? If not I would assume it's fine to leave them outside in the warm months (probably transplanted to a larger planter and then moved inside for the winter. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
