  1. Carol

    Very pleased with My 15 plants in a hedge setting
    That were planted last year May/June.
    I not sure, but I think now is the timing to cue them back for this summer. I just don’t know where or how much to prune off. Please help!

      Hi Carol! Thanks for your comment. So glad you are enjoying your hibiscus! They are beautiful flowers. I checked with our maintenance supervisor, Andrew, and he recommended cutting hibiscus to the ground (3 inches) in the late fall or early spring when the plant is dormant.
      I apologize for the delayed response. Please let us know if we can help you any other way!
