Q.Frozen Hibiscus Tree

Anonymous added on December 18, 2010 | Answered

I have a Hisbiscus tree in a patio contatiner that went through a nighttime freeze in Austin, Texas. What do I do now to care for it? The leaves are all wilted and brown. I haveĀ an in-ground plant that comes back after freezes and pruning, but I have never had a potted tree, so I’m not sure how to care for it after the freeze.

When the leaves of a hibiscus die, as long as the stems are still alive (which should be the case unless it was a prolonged freeze), the leaves will regrow. Just care for it as normal and it will recover.
