How Do You Trim Hibiscus
How would I do this with a Hibiscus Tree? Trim back the plant – Trimming back the plant allows the plant to focus on regrowing its roots. In perennials, trim back about a 1/3 of the plant. In annuals, if the plant is a bush type, trim back a 1/3 of the plant. If it is a plant with a main stem, cut off half of each leaf.
