Winter-Kill Hibiscus

DeltaOrion added on February 14, 2011 | Answered

I have five hibiscus plants that thrived last summer. I left them in the ground during freezing weather (somewhat northern Florida). Now that they appear to be dead, is there any chance that they may come back if I trim the dead wood back to the ground?

As long as the stems are still alive, they will come back. This article will help you with caring for cold damaged plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/tips-for-saving-cold-damaged-plants.htm

As for cutting it back, I would wait until spring before doing so. This article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/hibiscus/tips-for-pruning-hibiscus-plants-when-to-prune-hibiscus.htm
