I have no buds/flowers on my Hibiscus (rose of sharon) this year. The plant looks healthly, green leaves but no flowers. Any ideas?



What zone are you in? Temperature affects flowering for hibiscus. It is a tropical plant. The most common reason for not setting buds, given a warm environment, is not enough water. Rose of Sharon is very hardy - fertilize, water more - good luck!

Well, hibicusses respond very well to pruning. I always prune mine in winter or after flowering. But given the right climate hibiscusses should flower all year round, but never in abundancy and also: a flower only lasts one day!
