Had the same trouble 2 years runningDrc. Had to remove it this spring which left a huge gap!

Yes I think its best to start again sometimes ML. I have a Hibiscus that has 3-4 flowers only every year so this year its going.

Sometimes you have to be ruthless.Is your Hibiscus in a sheltered spot Drc? Have wished to buy one lately.

Yes it is in a sheltered spot in full sun ML but its one of those shrubs that does not do much for some! We were talking about it when I posted a photo of it recently - being a poor shrub sometimes and not worth the trouble.

Looks good, I am going to buy one now.
