@horntoad, Jay, just wondering how your hibiscuses are doing? Did they survive our freeze?

My Shirley Temple and NOID red have not shown new growth; they were planted in ground. But the same NOID red in Beaumont (this was the mother plant of the NOID red that was previously mentioned) is sending up new growth.
The Japanese Lantern in pot just starting to have a few blooms; it was sheltered in garage.

A friend lost her mom's 30 yr hibiscus, which was in a pot, even though it was protected. Fortunately I had taken a cutting 2 yrs ago and it survived freeze (covered under patio).

I started Texas Star from seed couple of weeks ago and they're looking good.

I brought most of them in when we had a projected freeze, so I didn't lose many. I lost my Hibiscus diversifolius for sure, but I have some seeds to restart it. I have some missing tags so I'm waiting for blooms to be sure what I have.
