    Hello
    My hisbiscus is in its 2nd season. I pruned it back this spring more than half it height. It was over 5 feet tall. Big healthy. It's growing back nicely but only one bloom since. I have two different kinds although I have no idea what they are. One of them is blooming the other is not. Asking what to do for the one that is not blooming? Maybe just let it be and maybe next year it will bloom?
    I live in Florida so I bought them in may of 2019 and they have bloomed up until I cut them this March.
    The picture is the plant not blooming. The second picture that plant is blooming. 20200524_141734.jpg

    Sounds like a severe pruning (from the plant's perspective). It will just take it a bit longer to bounce back, but it should be fine.

    In the future, you can prune more often but prune less of the plant to keep blooms consistent from year to year.
