Hi Mary!

It would need a greenhouse or much care indoors in your area. It is a dry-forest plant which likes full sun. It tends to flower in full sun during winter months in Hawai'i. (That photo was a couple weeks ago.)

All native Hawaiian Hibiscus species are tropical plants which are habitat specific.

An easy to grow tropical Hibiscus is, Hibiscus rosa-sinensis. Many folks grow it successfully indoors.

Aloha, Dave

Well, I guess I'll have to enjoy your picture. I live in a single wide trailer with my sister. We do not have room to keep many indoor plants. We are hoping to build a greenhouse next year and a bigger house to live in.
