Q.Hibiscus Dropping Leaves

Anonymous added on September 30, 2011 | Answered

We have several well established hibiscus plants around our yard. Some of the plants’ leaves are turning yellow and falling, to an extent we have not seen before. Could you please give us some advice as to how to proceed? The other plants in our yard are doing fine. Also, we have a yard maintenance company that sprays and fertilizes the plants.

There are many things that can cause hibiscus leaf drop. This article can help you with what might have caused yours: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/hibiscus/answers-to-what-causes-hibiscus-leaves-turning-yellow.htm

While this article is on yellow leaves, the reason for leaf drop is normally the same as what causes the leaves to turn yellow right before the leaves fall off. Most of the time, the hibiscus recovers just fine.
