Hibiscus Yellowing Leaves


Anonymous added on August 2, 2011 | Answered

My yellow flowering hibiscus looks healthy and is blooming nicely, but I am concerned that it continually has several leaves that yellow and fall off even though most of the leaves are dark green and appear healthy.

Some leaf loss is normal for a hibiscus as long as it looks healthy overall. You can reduce it a bit more by giving it some fertilizer and increasing watering for the plant.

Leafy plants naturally discard the oldest leaves so a few yellow leaves on a hibiscus is natural. The plant is simply making room for the new growth. I pick two or three yellowing leaves off my hibiscus every other day. I have a lantana that has the same habit.
