My first try at Lady Baltimore Hibiscus. We live in Southern Texas, near San Antonio. The first part of June we saw the most wonderful huge purple flowers from one plant. By the time we returned home in two weeks, no more blossoms. The person watering the plants outside, said the bush had been loaded with blossoms; I can see the empty stems where the blossoms were.
We had fertilized the plants when they were freshly planted in late March. Just wondering if the bush tired itself out and might need more fertilizer? Also, one of the Lady Baltimore plants was an older plant we got from a nursery, and it has had no blossoms. though the person caring for the plants while we were gone said that she saw lots of blossoms, but they all fell off as buds. Would it be wise to split the plant this time of year? Both the hibiscus plants are in fairly large pots. The tropical hibiscus is doing fine and continues to have flowers.
Thanks for any help you might afford these lovely plants.
