Q.My House Sitter Thought My Hibiscus Was A Weed And Cut It Way Down:( Is There Any Shot It Will Grow This Year?

I live in RI. He didn’t pull it out of the ground but he cut all the stalks back to like 2 inches long!!! I’m so bummed. Do I need to do anything to ensure it grows again next year? Thank you!!

I assume it is a hardy hibiscus. It should put out new growth this year, and if there is time, it could bloom.

In any case, it will come back next spring. You don't need to do anything special.
