Pruning tropical hibiscus

Niles, MI(Zone 5a)

I have a Mandrian Wind, it is about five years old and lives in the bathroom for the winter and outdoors for the summer. It is in need of a trim. Can I cut it back and see blooms for the winter?? I plant to pot the trimmings so I have more plants, but how far back can I clip it ???????
