Carol, is it grafted? Many of the show-stoppers like this one are. If so, by all means bring it in. I've lost many by leaving them out and losing the graft and the rootstock lives to produce just a plain hardy red bloom.
No this one isn't grafted, but will treat it lke one
Here is mine.
The blooms can be used to add a touch of class to gifts as they won't wilt...at least until morning. I have the plain red and a pink. I really love yours! Such beautiful flowers!

Thank you! These are the first ones like this I have had. I used to live in California and had white hibiscus in the ground. They did very well with little maintenance. I am now in North Carolina, and don't think this will survive in the ground during the winter. For now I have these in pots on my shaded porch. I never had much luck with potted hibiscus, any suggestions would be great!
What a pretty flower - I don't suppose these would be ones you would use to make a hibiscus tea!
I have about 4 colors of hibiscus planted in the ground. They do fine here in the winter. Not so good this hot dry summer, though.
Below is a series I did in the backyard, this Hibuscus is approximately 3m and is always in bloom.
finishing, and other species common here in Brazil.
