Hi, I got this plant this summer and it has been blooming like crazy. All I know is that it is a Hibiscus rosa-sinensis and it likes the sun. It is/was such a beautiful plant. I keep it outside and it rained recently and then the weather dropped. I think I killed it. I took out the inner vase and felt the soil at the bottom, it doesn't feel too dry or too wet. It does have a different odor, not bad, just different. The leaves have wilted and I'm not sure what is wrong. I have brought it inside, but I'm not sure what to do to help save it. Any suggestions? I've added pictures..if anyone knows what's going on please let me know.

That one's a tropical hibiscus, isn't it? Don't think they like it when temps drop, bringing it inside to recover would probably be the best bet.

Looks like it got frost on it or too low temps. Lowest i would leave a tropical hibiscus out is 35. Best thing to do is put it somewhere warm and see if it grows new shoots.
