Recently planted a Hibiscus that a friend gave me. It is incredibly beautiful. Planted in the right location--pretty sunny. It has bloomed consistenly for weeks and suddenly . . . individual braches are starting to wither. It seems perfectly healthy otherwise. Any suggestions??

Was the plant in a pot or given as a bareroot division from your friends garden? If it was barerooted, then it is possibly just transplant shock. Otherwise I have no clue. Do you have a picture you could post. Hope you find the answer soon.

It probably is just transplant shock. You can just prune the whole plant down to about 12 inches. Water good and it should spring back.
