I have an Hibiscus that is to stay outside. I live in Le Mars, Iowa, so it freezes here. Should I cut it down or cover it when it starts to freeze?

It depends on what kind of hibiscus you have. If it is a tropical hibiscus or a hardy hibiscus. If it is a hardy hibiscus, it should be fine without protection. If it is a tropical hibiscus, it will not survive outside under any circumstances where you live.
