Planted yellow hibiscus trained as a small tree. Was great for two weeks. Now leaves are wilted and folding. They are not yellow though. Watered a lot to no avail.

    Typically, in hibiscus, this is caused by a watering issue. Since it's newly planted, there may be gaps in the soil around the root ball that is drying out the roots. I would tamp down the soil around the plant. I would also recommend upping the watering. In addition, it could be suffering from shock.
