Hibiscus in a Conatiner?
I happened to get large 18" and 20" pots from one of my friend. 2 of them are round in shape and of plastic, one is a square terra-cota and other one is a cylindrical shape plastic pot.
My house faces north and so there is lot of sunshine in the front yard from morning till evening. But my small porch near entry door stays in shade through out the day. Also, there is a porch covering the garage which gets partial shade/partial sun.
I am getting 1 Rose of Sharon Hibiscus(3-in-1 colors of white, blue and lavendre in one tree) As i lost 5 of my hibiscus to the winter frost last year, i want to keep the Hibiscus in the pot. Can i do that?
Is the 18" pot sufficient for it?
If the pot doesn't have a hole for water drainage, should i cut one hole up in the bottom?
How big will the hibiscus grow and will it flower the same way in pot as it does in the garden soil?
How often do i need to water and fertilize?
