Answer #1 ·'s Answer · Hi Kim,

If you live in USDA Zone 8 the Confederate Rose Hibiscus should be dormant. Prune all of last years dead branches back to about 6" to a foot in height. The new growth will begin to emerge in April sometime. If we have a late winter it may be May before seeing the new growth. Pruning is necessary every year prior to spring.

Pruning should not be necessary during the growing season.

Hi Brooks,,
Thanks for your answer, however, I live in Savannah GA, where confederate roses do not go in to dormant stage. As I mentioned in my previous question that my confederate rose is about 30' wide and 15' tall. Do I cut or prune any portion of the tree to make fuller look?
