Hibiscus has survived a late winter transfer. Apparently sometimes you have to wait for leaves to appear until July....

@AnnikasGarden I have 6 different Hibiscus including Red Heart and they are all still bare leafed. Usually towards end of June before any leaves on them. I have been threatening to pot them up as it's too cold for too long up here for them to flower. Season is too short. Look forward to seeing yours flower

Thanks, mine was under mulch and fleece most of the winter which may have helped.
