Well that's bad! Sad

You have aphids. Lots of aphids. I have been fighting them on my Hibiscus this year also.

You can wash them off with warm soapy water but they will return and you need to get ahead of them. Spray your plant with full strength rubbing alcohol and then wash it with warm soapy water.
