Oh no! My hibiscus moscheutos plant has some roots exposed!

Oh no! My hibiscus moscheutos plant has some roots exposed!

Post  RJARPCGP on 4/12/2014, 5:55 pm

Some of the soil sank and left some of the roots of my hibiscus moscheutos plant that I put in the ground on August 10, 2013, exposed.

I want to blame this past winter for that mess.
It may have died on me!

I purchased the plant at Allen Bros. on August 7, 2013.

Maybe not

True, these are a bit more sensitive than the other hardy hibiscus but give the plant time to leaf out.

Mine (in VA) haven't even sprouted yet, still a bit early.   I would replace the missing soil and let it be. You should know by the end of May if it lives.

I don't know what variety of hardy hibiscus I have but mine (in GA) also have not sprouted yet.  They are the last plant to emerge in the spring.  I agree, cover the roots and wait.

The only sign of hope is the center of the main stem.

Update for bad news:

Unfortunately, the hibiscus failed to sprout at all in 2015! The hibiscus is now dead like a fly!

So, nothing outdoor-hibiscus-related at 105 Main St. in Springfield, Vt anymore. I'm gone from there, anyways, I moved out of there on April 15, 2016.

Sorry to hear that, RJARPCGP, sometimes things just do not work out.

I think the first quarter of 2015 made sure it was dead like a fly that landed on the food!
