Q.Hibiscus – Dead or Alive

Zone 16? San Jose, CA | Shilgirl added on April 27, 2012 | Answered

Our Hibiscus plants look dead. We think they are dead except when you break a stem, it looks green. Makes you think there is life in there somewhere. How can we tell if they are dead?  If they are not dead, what can we do to bring them back to a green and blooming plant?  Many thanks for any help. . . Shirley
