Hibiscus Trunk And Branches Have Small Raised Whitish Spots And Is Producing Few Flowers

Question From: Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, United States
Q: My hibiscus looks sick. The trunk and branches seem to have small, raised whitish spots on them and I am not sure if this could be the cause for it not looking too well and not producing many flowers.... here in Australia we are just coming into Spring... thank you...J

A: I suggest you take photos of the damaged plant material to an independent garden center for an accurate ID and control. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
