Question by jqie

Received two Hibiscus May 06, planted immediately, mostly shade
out of the cruel Fla. summer sun, keep soil moist. Doing
beautifully, dark green leaves, doubled in size. However, the
flowers are white to pink instead of the perriwinkle blue they
were when I received them. Am I not fertilizing properly. If so
what should I be using. Thank you for the help.

Jacquie,

Very strange. It could be due to a lack of sunlight. You indicated that the foliage looks good so I seriously doubt that any additional fertilizing is needed. I suspect that the heat is part of the reason for the color change. In fall and early spring I bet your blooms get back to what they were when you purchased the plants.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
