Will they survive the winter?
My wife bought two hibiscus plants this year and we planted them in the ground outside. They have the dark green shiny leaves and I learned from this forum that they are the tropical variety.
I don't want to dig them up and was wondering if they might survive the winter if I cut them down near the ground and cover with mulch. We live in the northern part of Tennessee and it will likely be a few days where the temps get into the teens or even lower during the winter.
