Asked by pete12 - September 1, 2011

In southern England I have 3 hibiscus plants. The blue one is fine and thriving, but the 2 maroon coloured ones do not flower. The flower head starts to develop but stays very tight and very small. These two are in different parts of the garden. The flower petals stay so tight and small that they do not come out at all. Please help!


3. Hibiscus Outdoor Care in Tucson

Asked by Anonymous - September 1, 2011

How much sun should my hibiscus get when outdoors in Tucson? Should I keep it in the shade always or will it tolerate direct sunlight?

  • While this plant enjoys full sun in most areas, it may get too hot in your location. Therefore, you may want to consider placing it in an area that receives partial shade during the hottest part of the day. You can also choose to grow the plant in a container and move as needed to protect it from sunscald.

6. Foliage on Flowering Tree Being Eaten

Asked by Anonymous - September 3, 2011

I have a Hibiscus. I live in Vero Beach, FL. I am accustomed to bugs that eat new growth and cause flower drop, etc. This is unusual because all of the growth on the lower parts of the branches is affected. I guess it has been eaten, though I cannot find evidence. I have treated with assorted sprays and systemics. I have looked at it after dark, thinking it was something that came out then. The flower buds and top growth are fine. There are no deer here. I have inspected very closely and see no evidence of any pests. Can you help me?
