The Q&A Archives: hibicus

Question: I planted 2 hibicus plants last spring and they did wonderful all summer. Early this spring I pruned them a little bit. I have not noticed any growth yet this spring. I didn't think I needed to bring them inside for the winter. Do you think they will come back or should I start over?

Answer: If your plants are perennial hibiscus (rose of sharon) they will resprout this spring. If you were growing the tropical hibiscus (shiny leaves) they are not frost hardy and will not come back after spending the winter outdoors.
