I have never planted a bareroot one, just those growing in pots from the garden center, but I am hoping you gave it plenty of room to grow! If it decides it likes the location, it will get huge in a few years. I will try to locate pictures of mine.

BTW..I am not to far from you, just down 81 in Wyoming.


RE: Hibiscus Moscheutos

Thanks Gerry for getting back I had sent a reply email to you so it might be in your spam mail but anyway I think I planted it in the wrong spot now Im wondering if I should move it now or wait since I had to dig it up yesterday and put it in the right way. I hope it catches.
Wyoming isnt far from me at all.

RE: Hibiscus Moscheutos

Hi Nancy and Gerry,
If I don't know which end is up (which seems to be a permanent condition for me) I plant the root or bulb on it's side. That usually works out alright for me.

RE: Hibiscus Moscheutos

I had one and also two cultivars lord and lady baltimore It was much prettier than the cultivars I bought it at Bowmans wildflower preserve native plant sale But I ended up pulling it and the others out because the were being decimated by the hibiscus sawfly. Sarah
