Hibiscus Health Issues - No Blooms
I'm new to 'gardening' ..
I've recently moved into a house that has "new" landscaping - including a hibiscus plant (not sure what type.) The plant has never bloomed that much - the most I've had was 5 at a time (my neighbor has 20+).
A few weeks ago I noticed that some branches were bare, there were some white spots on the leaves and that the plant was covered in ants.
I tried to spray it with soapy water for a few days, but that didn't do anything. I then tried 3 in 1 plant spray which seemed to do the trick on the spots and the bare branches started to have leaves again. There were still ants but not as many.
I noticed over the last week that there were always a handful of yellow leaves. Between that and the fact that the plant doesnt bloom that much, I figured it needed fertilizing. I used Bayer Advanced 2 in 1 rose and flower care (http://www.bayeradvanced.com/rose-flower-care/products/2-in-1-systemic-rose-flower-care) and now I don't have any blooms (and the leaves are still yellow).
