My hibiscus bloomed great when planted, but stopped blooming after 3 months in Savannah,GA. Planted with Miracle Grow in sandy soil.

Most miracle grow products contain slow release nitrogen, and quite a bit of quick release nitrogen. This will halt flowering. This would be my first guess. You will have to offset this with potassium and phosphorus, or by raising the pH just slightly.
