How to Properly Prune and Grow Award Winning Hibiscus Plants

I just bought my first Hibiscus plant at Home Depot and replanted it in a fairly large planter. I live in Illinois so I wasn’t too sure if it would survive an “in ground” ordeal. While the plant took off and put out a lot of leaves and buds, none of the buds seems to blossom and the ones that blossom do not fully open up and fall off the plant within hours. Do I need to prune the plant down? I wasn’t sure of the risks involved with pruning during the middle of it’s peak growth. Please help.

Regards,

Bob..
