Q.Protecting Hibiscus From Cold

Anonymous added on December 4, 2010 | Answered

We are in Houston. It will be getting down to 25 degrees F tonight, with the next day 50 degrees F and a low of 40 degrees F. What should I do for the one night? Do I need to do anything for my hibiscus tomorrow too? They are not in pots but in the ground, so uprooting is not an option.

Cover the plant with a sheet or blanket. Make sure to remove it first thing in the morning. This will help insulate it from the cold.
