I was given a Lady Baltimore hibiscus this past spring and planted it at that time. It bloomed beautifully. Now that cold weather is here will it suvive through the winter or should I have brought in in for the winter?
I live in the west end of Rivhmond, VA

Hibiscus 'Lady Baltimore' is a hardy hibiscus that will do fine planted in the garden over the winter in your area. It will die back to the crown and in the spring, you can cut the old stems to the ground. It will send up new shoots from the crown in late spring. They are slower to break dormancy in the spring than many other perennials, but they will eventually pop up! You might want to mulch the crowns with a bark mulch or shredded leaves for the winter, especially since this might be a colder winter than normal! Thanks for your post! Happy Holidays!
