Hibiscus Leaves Curling Up
The leaves are not dying off they are just curling upcupping and on the datura it seems almost like they are mummifying very hard thick distorted and leathery to the touch.
Hibiscus leaves curling up. I sprayed once with a garden insecticide but nothing changed. They should be transplanted when dormant for the winter. Hibiscus are paper petaled bright flowering plants that add a tropical touch to any location. Commonly grown as houseplants you can move hibiscus outdoors in summer but some hardy hibiscus can survive winter temperatures.
Aphids are common hibiscus pests. Aphids mealybugs whiteflies and scale insects are a few garden pests that will feed on the hibiscus resulting in wilted discolored and shriveled foliage that falls from the branches. I have 9 hibiscus plants that are hardy. These tiny insects are usually black brown pink or red and are most often seen underneath hibiscus leaves.
Hibiscus unfortunately can be attacked by a number of pests eg. Make sure the soil is moist and leave it alone for a while. The four or five leaves near the top of the plant are curled or rolled up. They are reminiscent of hawaii and require warm temperatures and sun.
The large delicate blooms of the hardy hibiscus hibiscus moscheutos also known as rose mallow range in size of 3 or 4 inches across up to 12 inches in diameter. Near the coast watering of the foliage after a saltladen wind is recommended to reduce build up of salt on the foliage. Last year one of the plants leaves started curling. Dust and grime builds up on the leaves in some areas and regular hosing will remove this.
Hi everyone i have a young blue ballerina that is growing fine with some buds. Hi arlene curling of leaves could indicate that there is a sap sucking insect present on the plant. Now the one next to it and the one next to that one have started to curl. It may recover it may not.
