Tropical Hibiscus - Knowledgebase Question

My hibiscus was really damaged with the last frost. I only see new growth at the very bottom of the plant. Should I prune it back that far??

It sounds as though the entire top part of your hibiscus died back. I'd prune it down to where the new growth is emerging. With a large, healthy root system you hibiscus should grow quickly and replace the lost branches. Good luck with your hibiscus!
