More infor please: I sent in a question about transplanting our potted hibiscus plant and was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I received an answer. Thank you - But I failed to mention that we want to plant it in our yard, not another pot. When is the best time to do that?

Glad you are happy with the prompt response but sorry I misunderstood your question. I thought you were referring to a tropical hibiscus rather than a hardy hibiscus (Rose of Sharon). If you have a hardy hibiscus, you can plant it now as long as you provide some protection from the hot sunshine for a few weeks. Once it becomes established and has adjusted to its new growing spot, it can take full sunshine. Or, you can wait until the weather cools a little before planting it. In this case, no temporary protection will be necessary; late summer and early fall sunlight isn't quite as intense as mid-summer sun.

Hope this answers your question. Be sure to stop by again soon!
