Answer: Hibiscus thrives in your growing region. It isn't necessary to prune it down to the ground; instead, prune it back by about one-third to keep the shrub bushy and dense. Growth slows or stops during the hottest months of the year, but should have started again in early October so now's a good time to prune off any long stems and even out the look of your shrub. You can prune anytime the plant is growing (which is nearly all year around). When temperatures cool in December and January, you won't see much growth so you won't need to prune; when growth begins again in February, you can prune it again. Hope this answers your question!
