Buds falling off my hibiscus

MarilynDouglas Hunt


My hibiscus looks very healthy and is blooming but I keep fining unopened blooms laying on the ground. Anyone know why?

    Do you have a double hibiscus by any chance, Marilyn? They're more prone to bud drop than other types. High temperatures (over 90) can also cause bud drop. It could also be an insect issue, but in that case the buds would probably yellow before they drop.

    You must be right. It is a double and it has been over 90, plus I have it sitting on concrete. Thank you Douglas.
