Q.Hibiscus Winter Storage

Anonymous added on December 4, 2010 | Answered

I have about 10 Hibiscus that I would like to save over the winter but do not have the room to care for them inside. Can I remove some or all of the root ball soil and then let them dry out in a dark place until spring? Can a Hibiscus survive something like that?

Yes, you can do this. Make sure the location is cool (not cold) and that you dip the roots in water once every 4-5 weeks while you are storing it. It will look dead during this time, but in the spring, when it is planted again,it should come back fine.
