Hib Help? Dave..are you there?


O.K. Dave or any other hibiscus person out there...what am I doing
wrong? I have not had one bloom on my hib. Early spring I lost a LOT of
leaves and now I have leaves on top but not much in the middle. The
plant is almost two feet tall and looks so sad now. It gets morning sun.
It's in a pot. I just love the color of the flowers on this plant and
can't figure out why it is not blooming. Anyone? Dave?

I'd say then that "In a way it looks a bit even" ;+)
