The Q&A Archives: Hibiscus

Question: Hi! Pls help me? I have 9 assorted Hibiscus in a pot which I purchased last spring. They look like they are dead now. Can I revive them. I love my hibiscus. Tx U!

Answer: Hibiscus are frost tender so if you've had some frosty weather, the leaves will die on the plants but the roots should be okay. Prune your plants back to encourage new growth. You should see new leaves emerging from the stems as long as you keep the plants well watered. If no new growth appears, the roots have died over the winter months and the plants will need to be replaced. Let's hope they revive this spring!
