plants recovering from the cold - Knowledgebase Question

Question by swboobala

I have several hibiscus plants and mammy's (crotons) that show very little signs of recovering from the cold winter that we had. I live in seminole, florida and we didn't get below freezing at any point, but it was still cold. Will these plants recover?

If the roots didn't freeze, your hibiscus and crotons should recover. You can prune away any obviously dead plant parts now. Pruning encourages new growth. If you see nothing happening 2 weeks after pruning, the plants probably won't recover. Let's hope for the best!
