Q.

buds fall off my hibiscus without opening

Zone St Petersburg Florida | Ella81bella added on September 15, 2015 | Answered

What is causing the buds to fall off my hibiscus without opening? I bought hibiscus that were blooming. After I planted them, they still look green and healthy but the buds all fall off instead of opening. They get watered every day either by rain or by me. They have been in the ground for three weeks. One of the two plants bloomed for the first ten days, but now the buds are falling off of that one also.
