3. 1 of 5 Hibiscus Plants Losing All Its Leaves

Asked by Anonymous - July 28, 2011

I have five hibiscus plants in the front of my house. Four of them are fine. However, the leaves began turning yellow and falling off on only one of them. I gave it extra fertilizer and water, but now the branches are basically bare. I checked it for bugs and do not see any. I do not understand why this one is having problems when conditions for all five are the same. It looks as though new leaves are sprouting on the branches, but I am not sure they will continue to grow. It was still producing flowers for a time, but then the buds dry up. I don’t know what to do to help it and it looks absolutely terrible.

7. How Can I Save My Hibiscus Plant?

Asked by Flash12 - August 1, 2011

I have a five-foot Hibiscus Plant outside my front door and recently the leaves have turned yellow and are falling off at an alarming rate! There are hardly any green leaves left and I need some help.

  • Is this a tropical hibiscus or hardy hibiscus? If tropical, mine that are in full sun are doing the same thing. Are yours in a pot? If you are experiencing great heat and no rain, I think it is just suffering as a result. Be sure to water well and you may want to move it to partial shade during the hot times of the day. They won’t bloom as well but they live for another day (Fall). YOu can then get it to survive to bring into the house this winter (if you get frosts).
