    The smell doesn't take over the whole house just the laundry room where I keep them. Plus they only get smelly for about 3-4 days out of the year. I personally would never have them it was the wife's idea.

    Did the hibiscus survive?

    We are zone 3b and have several we planted by our house that survives our brutal winter. And about a dozen of them we planted at a credit union in town. Late fall after the die back. Cut them off close to ground about 2" water them good and mound 4"to5" of mulch over them. In late spring you should start seeing new shoots come up. Carefully remove mulch.

    One survived barely through the winter. Had about 12 leaves on it when it went back out in the spring. It is now full of leaves but no signs of any flowers
