The Q&A Archives: Winterizing Hardy Hibiscus

Question: What should we do for Hardy Hibiscus in preparing for the winter?

Answer: Wait for frost to kill back the tops, then remove the old stalks. Mulch heavily. In spring, remove the mulch as the weather warms and wait for them to re-emerge. These tend to come up very late in the spring as a rule, so you might want to mark their location now so you will know where they are next year.
