I have a tropical Hibiscus that I bring indoors every fall. Can I prune it back and if yes, how much?

You can, actually, prune these back really hard and they will come back from there. They will try to branch, but With my deep red hydrangeas, I liked to only keep a single stem, and prune it back to about 3 feet tall. This keeps it manageable, and producing at its best.
