I have 2 hibiscus plants that I just bought, do you deadhead the flowers after the wilt? I noticed the flowers usually only last a day or so.

I do not deadhead. They fall on the ground by themselves. AND THEN THE MYSTERY BEGINS!!!!!!! Sometimes the spent flowers accumulate where they fall. Other times they just seem to disappear. I wonder what is up with that??? Hee hee hee! I have three pooches that maybe could answer that. They like to dig and 'store' stuff. Luis
