|Hibiscus is frost tender but will generally tolerate a light frost. Since winter has only begun you might want to wait until late winter to prune away any frost damage. Pruning now will encourage new growth which will be tender enough to die back even before a frost so just be patient with your hibiscus and prune it back in late winter or early spring when all chance of frost has passed.
