I inherited a hibiscus approximately 5' tall and potted in a container.
I am having some difficulty caring for it / Identifying it.
I believe it to be tropical and bring it inside during the winter. I live in Northern Massachusetts, zone 6.
It does somethings that make me think it may not be tropical.
- Does not like full sunlight during the summer months
- Does not like it when I bring it inside around October/November. Leaves yellow and fall off
- Hasn't bloomed in a couple of years.
I understand that there may be some initial shock bringing it inside, but seems like I'm doing something wrong.
My questions are "is it tropical or hardy?" and "what is the best way to care for it year round?"
Thanks for your help
