Q.Hibiscus tree not blooming why

I wintered the tree inside. Pruned it in the fall. Out on my deck all spring and summer only one flower bloomed. Leaves are beautiful and it is full.

Our experts say it likely needs some fertilizer, especially phosphorus which helps with blooming. Use a "bloom booster" fertilizer or add some bone meal to the soil to help add some phosphorus. You also may need to do some pruning.
