Hibiscus Help??

My plants are on the west side of our home. They are kind of "leggy", with little green foliage and they look bare. Do they need more fertilizer?

I don't know how much fertilizer you've given them, but here are tips on how to fertilize.

I'm also including an article about leaf drop on hibiscus. Yours may be responding to a stressor like too much or too little water, improper fertilization, transplant shock, etc.
