Pruning Hibiscus


vintagecouple added on November 18, 2012 | Answered

You note that you should prune plants in spring or early fall.  I live in Florida where we have cooler mornings but approx. 70 + degrees during the day. Is it ok to prune my hibiscus now?
Thanks. . .

Your hibiscus probably will not go complettely dormant, so, yes, you can prune some now, but, I would wait to do heavy pruning until the plant is actively growing. Early or mid-March would give your plant time to branch out before it gets hot enough to do a lot of bloom initiatiion.
