All the leaves fell off my spindly eighteen year old hibiscus after being jolted by the cold a couple weeks ago. I thought it was over for sure this time. But this plant has survived so much. Todd carried it back to the basement for its third winter there. The ol’ guy even served as a Christmas tree one year, (Plant not Todd) but no longer fits into the upstairs aesthetic, Todd says. I have to agree but it bursts with beauty outside every summer. What a wonder. It’s not giving up yet!
