Hello
We moved into a new home in Albuquerque New Mexico and discovered this beauty growing in the yard. It is in a container. I think maybe it is a hibiscus of some sort. I want to keep it healthy and alive. What is it and what do i do

It looks like one of the tropical hibiscus. They love it outdoors in summer if kept well watered. Watch for whiteflies and mealy bugs and spray them off if you see any. It will probably have to go inside somewhere in winter, or take cuttings inside and let the plant go.

Looks like a hardy Hibiscus to me. I have one that looks just like it in a container in my garden. Has come back every year for the last 6 years in my zone 7a.

I split off your question into it's own thread in the Plant ID Forum since it was attached to another persons question.

@greene, I deleted your post that had to follow the thread since it came after the above ID question (I can't separate out individual posts) so you may want to repost on the original thread.
