I have had the same hibiscus for about 5 years and it hasn't bloomed in 3 years. It has about 3 straight stalks that are leafy but not doing much. It has been affected by little white fly bugs this year, and I have gotten rid of them but they keep coming back. I am using a water/soap solution to keep them at bay. I was just hoping I can prune down the stalks to about a foot tall and hope for better growth. It is looking pretty bad and shabby right now.
