I moved my hardy hibiscus about 1.5 months ago. It wasn't looking great when I moved it, the leaves were all but completely chewed up by some critter - it looked like swiss cheese at the time. Well, I am in zone
5, so it's been getting chilly here in Ohio and I walked over last night to check it and noticed that 1. it has no leaves left, and 2. the stalks are red.
Anyone else see this in the hibiscus plant
? Should I cut it down now? I also moved it to a rather dry area (but with good loose soil) and light shade, will it tolerate that? I also heard it is one of the last perennials to come up in the spring
- any ideas on when she'll be back?
