I planted 5 red, some had double blooms, hibiscus last summer outside. I do not know what kind they are. I cut them to the ground late fall and was wondering if they will come back or if i need to buy new ones????

We live in northern Illinois. Ours does not show life until late May.

RE: Will my hibiscus come back ?

Well, I have the same dilemma. Although we're in different zones I have the same question about my Joanne. I did the EXACT same thing you did and mine seems like it's taking FOREVER! I almost started to "chuck" it but it's starting to show some signs of life. Give it some time it'll be ok.

RE: Will my hibiscus come back ?

Was it the perennial(lighter green leaves) or tropical(dark green shiny leaves)?type? The trop will come back in a warmer climate. My perennial hasn't shown anything yet.What zone are you in?
