My hibiscus tree has white leaves after taking it outside for the spring. Why? What should I do to prevent this? The temps are warm enough now. It did this last spring, which was its first one, but then perked up and was fine in a few weeks. We have it going on its third summer, its first summer is when we bought it. Thanks.
