I have this great hibiscus in a pot on my deck. I will have to repot next year but for this year it will be the perfect size to bring in for a couple months of prettytropical color. We do not get alot of freezing weather but it does get a little too cool for these to remain outdoors. I have already rooted a couple of cutting from this plant for a couple of my neighbors.
