This hibiscus should not be blooming on my patio. The tree should still be inside, waiting for warmer nights to arrive. In the 7-8 years since I bought a pair of hibiscus trees and decided to see if they would “winter over,” I have taken them outside in late April or early May. This year they moved outside at the end of March. And now they are blooming. I take no credit for being a great gardener. I am not. I am afraid the beginning of a very long, hot, dry summer is in bloom.
