Getting Hibiscus Ready for Winter

poisonivy35 added on October 8, 2012 | Answered

I live in Indiana where we do have freezes, but Hibiscus can be left in the ground year around. My question is, do I cut back in the fall before the first frost or the spring? (If I am to cut back, when?) I dug them up from a friend's house in the spring for transplant and they were cut back). Thanks so much.
