|A Frozen Hibiscus|
I had hoped that this tropical bush was well protected near the house and under a large pine tree's branches but the temperature went below 30 degrees F for an extended time. The hibiscus dropped its flowers and turned brown in a few days. It was recommended that I leave it alone to give it a chance to recover. Maybe it was still alive under all those brown leaves. What to do now?
I have left it alone for several weeks and I have not seen any greenery. It is recommended that the hibiscus be pruned in early spring under normal circumstances but this winter has been far from normal. It is misting this morning so I will wait for a sunny day to do any pruning. Then I will find out the extent of the freeze damage. Hopefully, the roots are still alive and it will grow again.
