The Q&A Archives: kopper king rose mallow hibiscus

Question: I just purchased two Rose Mallow Kopper King Hibiscus from my nearby home depot store. I was wondering if these plants will survive the winter months if planted in my flower bed. I live in central North Carolina.

Answer: Hibiscus "Kopper King" is very cold tolerant and is hardy to zone 4 so you should be fine. Plant it in full sun with soil that is organic and rich as well as evenly moist to almost wet. Be very patient with it in the spring, these don't start growing until the soil is completely warmed up. Enjoy!
