Hibiscis leaves are tiny...

sissylou(8)June 13, 2008

I have two topiary hibiscus that are planted in very large ceramic pots. They were beautiful last year, but have very small leaves this season. They are blooming, but look very puny. Does anyone know what the problem might be?

Thanks so much!

Hi Sissy I'm In El Paso and I've had those tiny one inch leaves (with lots of blooms!) since April before the 100 degree weather. Mine is variegated (white and red with green spots)and I've had it in a pot for 5 yrs re-potted it 2years ago so it hasn't been disturbed and the color is still good it's just kind of pathetic looking... I thought it was something I did... the weather has been strange in most parts of the country this year...
