bare branches on tree
I have a hibiscus tree red blooms dont know what kind it is I had it in a pot and was doing fine. I decided to plant it in the ground in April,, it started with yellow leaves then I guess it got over the shock and now it has green leaves. My problem is that I only see new growth on the front of the tree and the back of it has some bare branches. They dont seem to be dry becasue I tried to bend one and it did not break. Are they dead? should I cut them off. I also see some leaves growing on the bottom part of the main stalk. Should I just cut them off to keep the form of the tree and not let is branch out from the bottom? I dont know what to do to make it nice and full all around like I initially bought it. Any help would be appreciated.
