Answer: Your plant may be stunted because of winter or spring weather extremes, too little water, too much fertilizer, or insect attacks. If the color is good we can rule out a virus, but not a fungal or bacterial infection. It's really difficult to diagnose the problem without seeing it. You might want to take a sample of your hibiscus to the Cooperative Extension office in Kingston. Phone (401) 874-4272. The staff there can diagnose the problem and offer treatment recommendations.
