Mulching a Red Hibiscus

I bought a hibiscus plant at a flea market; the vendor told me it was a perenniel for our area of the country. She said that the "old wood" should not be cut back at the end of the season, it should be mulched for the winter months; in the spring the mulch should be removed and feeding should begin.


Around the end of June every year, beautiful red blooms appear. I water it with a weak tea solution at times and also put used coffee grounds around the base of the plant. It is flourishing in a whiskey barrel planter in the corner of my backyard deck.
