How do you care for a hibiscus plant in winter?
What care should be taken for hibiscus plants in Pennsylvania for the winter?

It depends on the type of Hibiscus you have. If it is a hibiscus hardy in your area(H. syriacus, H. coccineus and H. moscheutos are all hardy in your Zone 6 climate), then there should be no need for special winter protection. However, if it is tropical Hibiscus (H. rosa-sinensis, or Chinese Hibiscus, is one), then you should overwinter it indoors in a bright, cool spot.

Overwintering Hibisicus indoors works but plants need a lot of water. I water mine 2-3 times per week to keep them happy (and alive).
