dividing hibiscus - Knowledgebase Question

Dillsburg, Pe
Question by notahyle

I was given two plugs of hibiscus (supposedly the same color) was told to plant them together so they wouldn't look too scrawny. My problem is they are not the same color and I would like to seperate them, is this possible without damaging one or killing one?
Thank You Becky Hyle
PS I live in Pa.

I would dig and divide them now. Try not to injure too many roots in the process - the roots may be intertwined. If this is the case, swish the roots in a bucket of water to help untangle them and gently pull them apart with your fingers. You should be able to separate them without too much trauma. Best wishes with your garden!
