RE: confused on hibiscus

It might become bushier if you leave it alone. Some stores say it is a tree but all they do is trim it into a tree shape. The second way it could look like a tree is by grafting it onto a tree root stock.(Example would be the rose of sharon tree offered in catalogues which is the regular rose of sharon grafted onto a tree root stock) I think the most common method would have to be grafting to get it to look like that which if that is how it was done will not become bushy. Hope this helps a little.
