The Q&A Archives: Hibiscus Care

Question: I forgot to cut back my hibiscus bush (Rose of Sharon) in late winter. It is brown and no new growth has formed. can I cut it back now--in April or is it too late?

Answer: You can still cut it back. Ideally, hardy hibiscus shrubs should be cut back in late winter or early spring but since it hasn't started to grow yet you won't lose any blooms.
