Hibiscus not bushing up

Leaky6August 12, 2013

I have had a hardy hibiscus for about three years now, every winter the stalk breaks off and we start from nothing. I only get one stalk (about a foot and a half high) every year. No sign of a "bush".

I'm also zone 5 and have great success with my hardy hibiscus, in winter /early spring I cut the stalk down to ground level, as it should be. They die back to the ground every year, this is normal.thenslowly emerginf from the roots in late spring. Where is yours located? Nice moist soil and lots of sun for it. Mine are 3ftx3ft in second year... Not sure what could be the issue but someone here will have advice.
