Showy hibiscus

Hibiscus is a beautiful addition to any landscape, and grows well here in Zone 9. The woody bushes get to be 6 to 8 feet tall. I have to prune mine several times a year to keep it from taking up too much room.

My hibisci do well in my yard until the temperature dips below 40F. Then they do their death dance, but they're faking it. At my house, after they've "died," I chop them down almost to the ground. All but one has made a comeback from the very base of the plant, all fresh for spring.
