Pruning Hibiscus Plant

Anonymous added on June 6, 2011 | Answered

I just opened your website and it's great. However, I still have a question: My hibiscus lost a lot of leaves when it was brought indoors, in the fall. The branches look scraggly. I live in eastern PA; is it too late to prune? And if not, could I cut it way back? Any advice will be appreciated.

I think you can still prune it some. I would just do so lightly right now. In the fall, before you bring it in, you can prune it back a little harder.
