Q.Hibiscus Sun or Shade

Anonymous added on August 5, 2011 | Answered

I just received a beautiful orange blooming hibiscus as a gift! Where should I put it, in full sun or shade? Where I live, the average summer temps are in the high nineties and it does freeze. I can keep it in the pot, so I can bring it indoors in the winter.

They like sun, but in a container, they will need to be watered daily or even twice daily if heat is very high. They do well in containers as well as you can provide enough water in the summer and enough light indoors in the winter (or a place to put them into dormancy.
