Hibiscus Question

Posted by Hareball 8/Tx (My Page) on

I bought a hibiscus last year and it did fine. Over the winter I didn't bother with it. It looked liked it died but there are leaves sprouting from the base of the plant. The main trunk? of the plant looks dead but I cut the whole plant down and the trunk is about 6" tall. Should I cut the rest of it or just leave it since there is growth at the bottom?

Question: Can anyone suggest a hibiscus with really, really big blooms? I mean like satalite dish sized blooms! :)

RE: Hibiscus Question

All the growth will come back from the roots, so you can cut last years growth back all the way.
H. mocheutos has dinner plate size blooms - I think that may be the biggest.
