It finally started to come out of the ground when i noticed something had eaten off the tops of all 3 stems--will it be o.k.? will i still get flowers or is it all done for this year? I will be so disappointed if i do not see it flower this year because this is the first year i have it.

RE: something happened to my hibiscus

You're probably the victim of slugs, snails, or cutworms. Next time it comes out of the ground, put something around it to keep it safe, like cut the bottom out of a styrofoam cup and place it over the sprouts where they can grow through, and see what happens. yes, it should come back up. If the roots are healthy, it will eventually send up new growth.
