Luna Red Overwintering???

Grancru(z5 MI)October 6, 2005

I was just given a number of Luna Red plants and would like to know if they can be overwintered in continers without additional protection. I want to transplant to perminant containers but don't want to loose them here in Z5. Any suggestions?

Bury pots in chips or sand. Look up Hibiscus moscheutos, ones I have seen offered here looked to be a strain of that species.

Hi from Kalamazoo!

I got some Luna Blush hibiscus a month ago on sale and just planted them into the gardens. The Lunas are hardy to zone 5 so I read. I have had a Luna Blush in the ground for a couple of years and did nothing in particular to protect it - I will from now on tho!!! I would go ahead and plant yours and mulch them well - I think they are gorgeous! I am hoping to grow giant red and giant white (over 12 across in bloom) hibiscus this winter and have them ready to trade at the swap on 20th May in Wayland MI. I will have 5 to 7 stems to each gallon pot - it ought to be interesting!
