my hibiscus plant stopped blooming outdoors
hi! i purchased a hibiscus plant two years ago. i don't recall anymore what type of hibiscus plant it is, but i purchased it at walmart in the summer time. i had it in my patio, in a pot, and it flowered all summer long the first year. we live in pennsylvania where winters can be brutal, so i took the plant in once the weather got really cold. the plant continued to thrive and remained healthy through the winter and spring and was ready again to be taken out the following summer. to my surprise, when i took it out the following summer, it did not bloom at all. but when the cold weather arrived and it was indoors once again, towards the end of november, it started to flower again. the same thing this year. no blooms in the summer but around thanksgiving weekend, the beautiful blooms are out in full force. perhaps someone can kindly explain to me why this happened? can the flower be trained to bloom again in the spring and summer months? i know little about plants and would greatly appreciate any feedback and info regarding this matter. many thanks!
