Cutting Back Hibiscus

Pammiejam added on January 22, 2015 | Answered

Do you have to cut back the bad limbs on a hibiscus in the late winter or early spring? After summer and when we get our first freeze, all the leaves, etc. died. In the spring do we need to cut back the limbs so the new leaves can come out?
