How should I overwinter my hibiscus?

Hibiscus

I have a hibiscus that I purchased this summer. It has always been in the house in an east window. It flowered all summer long. The foliage still looks fine but there have been no buds or flowers since late fall.

I am trying to overwinter my hibiscus by putting it in the basement and lightly watering on occasion. Is there anything else that I should do? When can I prune it?

Hibiscus

Every summer we grow hibiscus on our deck. This is the first year we are over wintering the plant indoors. The leaves fell off but there are flowers on the tips of the branches. If it survives will we get new leaves and how should we prepare the plant to go back outside in spring?

How can I tell if my hibiscus is "hardy" and can withstand winter here in zone 5? I bought it about 3 years ago. I plant it outside in the spring and bring it into the house each fall. It is doing great and is huge. I would like to leave it outside, but don't want to lose it.

I live in Wisconsin. Can you give me some information on year round care for Hawaiian hibiscus? Should we grow them under artificial lights and fertilize in winter?

Should I be pruning my hibiscus in the spring or fall?

I have several hardy hibiscus with seed pods. If I harvest the seeds and plant them next spring will they produce new plants or is this a hybrid and I will get something else?

I have a deep pink hardy hibiscus. When the flowers fade, a brown seed pod forms with many seeds in it. How do I propagate new plants from these seeds?
