mystery solved about slow to bud hibiscus


I took a branch from my hibiscus to local garden centre, it has no buds this year, just grey growth, turns out its lichens, a result of a very cold winter,and a wet summer, will be sad to loose this lovely 15 year old shrub

Thats a shame Maureen :( - I planted a hibiscus last year and it too is very slow although of what leaves it has, they are green - must do a reminder to wrap it up in the winter if it survives the summer

Yes it makes me realise just what a bad winter can do, I did not protect it at all, if yours has leaves now, it should with any luck flower this season, hope so, its such an exotic looking plant, good luck Angie
