growing Hibiscus moscheutos

I have a Hibiscus moscheutos approximate age about 3years, I would appreciate any tips on this plant regarding pruning and over wintering, I have grown hibiscus for quite a number of years succesfully but this variety is a first.



You've done well to keep it for three years - although its a woody based perennial, it is only half hardy, so is frost sensitive, and is usually grown as an annual. I don't know what you've been doing to keep it, but whatever it is, it's obviously working!
