I have an Hibiscus on the strip of land just outside my fence. Years ago I was told the Hibiscus need water more than heat, my one gets watered by me about every 2 years and I live in one of the driest parts of the country. It is poor soil out there with, I think, good drainage. It gets sun from around 2 or 3 pm on. ..and it not only survives, but flourishes.

There is one in a street market in Cambridge, but I think the wood has to be seasoned for about 7 years.

Wow, what a sunset!

Anyone for Coffee

Yes definitely for the compost; some branches of Starbucks will give you used coffee grounds too.

Verdun, will the Fuschia be ok in semi-shade with good drainage?

My camera doesn't do justice to the Lisianthus; it is very intense

You are right about it needing to be frost free in the winter, sorry can't advise on pruning. If no one here knows then you could look it up on the Royal Horticultural Society site (RHS). They may have some info about it.
