So beautiful! Have you ever taken any inside to keep some blooms during the long winter?

Karen, we have tried, but either they come inside WITH hidden bugs .. or, 'develop' them ..
Inevitably the leaves fall back and I have a stick to look at.
Over wintering has never been my forte it seems . I do think it could be the fact we heat with wood ?
Where the plants are located gets warm ..
I wonder if I should cut the Hibiscus back?

At one point I did have an inside Hibiscus and we also heated with wood. It survived but did not thrive. I was misting it constantly. I probably got 3 blooms all winter.It was in a southern window, and if I did it again, I might add a plant light. I do hate how insects will appear, no matter what you do! I repotted it before going inside, and would give it a shower every week or two.
