Cutting Hibiscus Back for the Winter

Anonymous added on October 22, 2011 | Answered

I live in Concord, NC and want to know if my hibiscus plants should be cut back for the winter and how far back I should cut them. Also, I would like to know when to cut my rose bushes back and how far back I should cut them. I also want to dig up and split my calla lilies and need to know when to do that.
