Q.Can I transplant a hibiscus to a planter?

Zone Brampton On. L6V3H2 | Anonymous added on September 2, 2020 | Answered

There is a hibiscus growing in the basement window well of the house I just moved into. Looks like it has been there for a few years. About five feet tall. Or can I take a cutting and restart? How would I do that?

You can do either, but it looks like a Rose of Sharon to me by the foliage. It looks like you have a maple tree as well.

You can try digging up the shrub and immediately transfer it into a container, with as much of the rootball intact as possible. Keep it watered well till it revives after transplant shock. They get 8 to 10 feet tall if you'd rather plant it in the ground.
