Hibiscus Tree Planted Outdoors

Anonymous added on September 16, 2011 | Answered

We planted hibiscus trees outside this past spring. We live in eastern Idaho where the winters are pretty harsh. Can we cover our trees and leave them in the flower bed where they are planted, or do we need to transplant them to pots and bring them inside for the winter?

Hardy hibiscus need little winterizing. You can mulch around the base of the shrub in fall, but that is all they really need. Once they are planted, they should be fine from year to year.

Tropical hibiscus, however, requires winter protection. If this is what you have, then you will need to bring it indoors. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/hibiscus/wintering-hibiscus-indoors-winter-care-for-hibiscus.htm
