I live in deep southern part of Texas and the severe cold got all of my hibiscus trees that are 13 years old. When is a good time to cut them back ? Will they come back?
as long as yours is not a Tropical Hibiscus yours should survive the winter cold. Mine do fine up here in Pennsylvania. I don't cut mine back so I can't help you there.
Lyn - I live in Victoria Tx. - Mid South Texas - and the cold gets to my Hibiscus also. However they always come out again when the ground warms up. I trim my bushes in Feb and Sept/Oct as needed and they always have lots of flowers.
Where is the deep southern part of Texas?
Is one of my favourite shrubs but they are always the last to show any signs of life after the winter. So every year I worry my socks off, are they dead or alive. Then they start slowly to swell their buds before leafing up. But when the flowers arrive it is worth the worry and torment. My favourite is Blue Bird.
i bought a hibiscus plant at home depot this past summer and the label says its not a hardy plant and its an annual. my question is: can i bring it in and keep it in its pot in a south facing window? will it survive winter? i never planted it in the ground, since i live in the southwest corner of kansas, the weather here is really unpredictable...
sorry i posted twice
