I have 2 gorgeous potted hibiscus, and 4 large bouganvilla's. I want to know what the best thing to do for the winter is. I dont really want to let them die. I dont know what zone I live in, sorry. I am in the Dallas/Ft Worth part of Texas. [wavey]

If it gets cold there, you could bring them inside and keep them in a sunny window...at least the hibiscus. Not sure about the bouganvillas, are they in the ground?

Thank you for your responses! I dont know if the hibiscus is hardy or tropical. I bought it from Home Depot.
The bouganvilla's are in pots.
