Q.Deadheading Yellow Leaves

mauikaui25 added on May 9, 2011 | Answered

This is my first hibiscus plant and I need to know the basics for my plant to be outdoors–potted for the summer months. Do I remove the dead flowers and yellowed leaves? I already read about the watering and fertilizing, but I couldn’t find the answer to my question. Thanks.

You can remove both, but you don't have to. The will shed on their own if you do not, but some people like to do so to keep the plant looking tidy.
