Q.Cold Damaged Hibiscus Plants

Anonymous added on January 18, 2011 | Answered

Here in north Florida our hibiscus plants grew 10 to 12 feet tall and were blooming when we recently had several nights of below freezing temps and 40 degree windy days. Now all the leaves are brown and ready to drop. Should I prune them? If so, how high should I leave the stems above the ground?
