Hibiscus Flowering issue

Anonymous added on September 3, 2015 | Answered

I have a hibiscus but most of the blooms come out funky or looking dried or stunted. The leaves on the plant look healthy enough, just the blooms are funny. I have sprayed the plant with Ortho Ecosense brand garden disease control. I probably sprayed the entire plant thinking it was the right thing to do. I sprayed it a couple of weeks ago. I really would appreciate any advice you can give me. Thank you for your help.

It sounds like you have thrips. They will attack the blossoms. This article will help:
