I just. Bought my home 16 months ago but I've had work to do on it then I was in the hospital so I haven't pla Ted much till

This summer My hibiscus seems to be doing well and blooming I pla Ted where it gets partial shade But I don't know much other then the tag that. And on it I've had them before but they got very skimpy

I think hibiscus wants full sun to be really happy. And it will get attacked by midge gall, a small fly that lays it's eggs in the buds and causes them to turn yellow and drop before opening. If you treat them with Bayers tree and shrub you can prevent this, but it's not cheap. I love the flowers, so it's worth it to me. :o)
