Q.Hibiscus Plants- Minor Freeze Burns

Zone 8A | smfguy69 added on December 7, 2011 | Answered

We recently had a few days of below freezing and a few of my hibiscus plants suffered some minor freeze burns. Should I prune these now or wait until late Feb. early March to prune? Live in Sacramento, CA area. Thanks.

Since it is still early in the winter season and additional freezes are inevitable, I would hold off on doing any pruning until spring as this will provide some protection to the plant.
