Hibiscus Wilting and Turning White

I just put my hibiscus plant back outside for the summer and the leaves are wilting and turning white. I live in MN and the plant was doing great, so what happened? What can I do?

The whitened leaves are a sign of sunburn on hibiscus. I suspect this may have happened because the plant was not gradually transitioned to being outdoors. More information on successfully transitioning plants to outdoor life can be found in the following articles:
