My Hibiscus is loaded with buds, however they turn dark brown and never open. The leaves did have some signs of disease but we have sprayed the plant and it is looking better, however the buds are ready to open and then they turn brown. This only started about three weeks ago. I have had the plant three years and never had this issue. It is planted outdoors in full sun. Please let me know what I need to do to see the beautiful pink flowers again this summer.
Has the plant been stressed by dehydration? Over-fertilization? Hot weather? Aphids or thrips? Double-flowered hibiscus are more sensitive too, FYI. All of these conditions can result in what you're seeing.
