Q.

What causes hibiscus to have sparse leaves?

Anonymous added on June 15, 2015 | Answered

I have a double yellow hibiscus but it has very few leaves on it. I have had it for probably 6 months planted in the ground but it has very little foliage. It does bloom and I add Miracle Grow every 2-3 weeks to no avail. What can I do? It hasn't grown much taller or wider since planting. Thank you for your help with this.

would recommend having your soil tested. It sounds like there may be something missing that is keeping it from reaching its potential. A soil test will be able to tell you exactly what is lacking so that you can fix it accordingly.
