If you grow hibiscus, sooner or later you have to decide whether to prune or not. But what is pruning really? Pruning is how we help Mother Nature to shape a plant in ways that suit our needs. When we cut branches from a plant, we alter the all-important flow of plant hormones within the plant, causing side branches to grow, while delaying flower production now in order to get many more flowers later. Some equate pruning with chopping down the plant almost to the ground. For others, it's nipping off the green tip of a branch. Both these and other related techniques are what we refer to as pruning and are an important part of getting the most from exotic hibiscus.
