wintercare for tropical hibiscus
I obtained a small dbl red tropical hibiscus in a trade this spring. Living in Zone 4 I know it won't make it over the winter outside so could use some input as to how I might carry it over the winter. I have a cool basement where I carry my brugmansias and colocasias over in dormancy. Can i just repot the hibiscus and put it down into the basement or does it need to be carried over in 'growth' mode? I do have a sunny south winter.
I'd appreciate your input so i can enjoy this plant again next summer outside.
