Transplanting Hibiscus From Pot to Ground

Anonymous added on November 4, 2010 | Answered

My mother has 2 hibiscus potted plants and we wanted to transplant them to the ground around my back porch. When should we do this, or should we do this? The winters are between 45 and 30 degrees average and I read they can't tolerate this kind of cold. So whatever information you can give me will be appreciated.

It sounds like these are tropical hibiscus and they cannot tolerate temperatures under 50 degrees F. Therefore, it would not be a good idea to plant them in the ground. You should overwinter them indoors.
