Hibiscus Shrubs

Anonymous added on January 21, 2014 | Answered

I have several hibiscus plants outside, about 7 feet tall. We recently had a freeze here in Fl. and I had them covered, but they sre all brown now. Can I wait till spring to cut them back, or do you think they are gone? We do plan on cutting them back in the spring. They were beautiful, and I hope I didn't lose them.
