Hibiscus flowers develop on stems that grow on the current season's wood. If you've cut the plant back severely, you've probably removed the youngest shoots, as well as some of the older wood. Your plant will produce new shoots from the wood that's left. Once the shoots begin to grow, flower buds will develop, too. You just need to treat your plant well and exercise a bit of patience. Winter is a period of slow growth for hibiscus, so you'll probably not see any major growth until early spring.
