I have two hibiscus trees. Water them the same, same general location. One continuously blooms and the other rarely has a blossom. It continuously gets yellow leaves which I pick off and destroy. What is wrong with it?

Plants, like people, are a little different and although they appear to have the same exposure and care, one just isn't happy with the situation. It may be younger or just not as strong as the one that is flowering. I'd prune it back to encourage new growth. That should be just enough of a shock to make it flower like its companion. Hope so!
