Hibiscus are NOT easily hurt by pruning. While probably not the best time to prune, it can be done. The plants will resprout and bloom, but may take a few months to get back in their "groove" and bloom. Give them plenty of sun for best results.

Think on the good side when you prune you will have all those extras to start new plants.
