Texas Star Hibiscus - Help!
DH bought me two of the beautiful plants at a local home improvement store. He picked them because of the beautiful flowers and because they were supposedly hardy for this area (thus the 1 yr guarantee). Anyway, I am a little suspicious! Are they hardy in zone 7a? They look dead still. Was I supposed to cut them back to the ground? Any help or advise as to how to care for them would be really appreciated. Do you think they are dead? When should they leaf out?
