Q.do you water a Rose of Sharon pot during winter

Zone Cheyenne, WY | Anonymous added on August 7, 2020 | Answered

I live in Wyoming — winters are strange sometimes. I have a hanging plant of Rose of sharon that is beautiful and I hate to discard it for winter. I live in an apartment with no garden area to use — I do have a garage if that helps. What do you suggest for me to “save it”. Sorry I don’t have any photos of it. I am 87 and no camera, cell phone, etc. My plant does hang out on a small patio area.

I wonder if you mean something other than rose of Sharon because I can't feature it as a hanging plant. Perhaps a tropical hibiscus? I will give you instructions for both just in case.

When the plant has finished blooming and the flowers fade, make sure all the flowers are removed. Protect the crown of the plant by either wrapping it in bubble wrap or covering it with mulch to protect it over the winter in your garage, Here's an article that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/rose-of-sharon/rose-of-sharon-winter-care.htm
