I had a hibiscus for about 7 years. In early fall it died. I trimmed it down, hoping it will grow again this year. Is there anything I should do to help this process along? It gave such beautiful flowers.

New growth will emerge from below the soil, provided the roots are still alive. I would continue to care for your hibiscus as you have done for the past 7 years, just make sure it gets watered and fertilized. Guidelines on hibiscus care are in the articles below:
